Some fin wrong


I was surprised that neither Ian Hunt nor your reporter thought to mention that the other 'finback' bridge is to be found on the Manchester Metrolink (NCE last week).

It was built when the construction of the M62 necessitated the replacement of the bridge carrying the Manchester-Bury line over Bury Old Road at Besses o' th' Barn by one to carry the line over both roads.

This stretch of line now forms the northern leg of Metrolink.
