Severn Railway Bridge JRU01_01_231

Severn Bridge, Lydney, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. The Severn Bridge, viewed from the South Wales Railway on the west bank of the River Severn.
The Severn Bridge was opened in 1879, and carried the Severn and Wye Railway across the River Severn. In 1960, two barges collided with a bridge pier, and two spans collapsed. In 1961, during repair work, a similar collision occurred and it was deemed uneconomical to repair the bridge. It was demolished in the late 1960s. Following the opening of the Severn Road Bridge in 1966, the Severn Bridge is often referred to as the Severn Railway Bridge
