Opening of the Leamington and Warwick Railway - Melbourne Grange Viaduct, 1844 Featured Steam Trains Print

Opening of the Leamington and Warwick Railway - Melbourne Grange Viaduct, 1844

Opening of the Leamington and Warwick Railway - Melbourne Grange Viaduct, 1844. The distinguishing feature of the line...is found in the undulatory character of its gradients. The entire length rises and falls like the surface of a gently rolling ocean...and these "ups and downs"...are so contrived that the impetus acquired in running down one incline is contrived exactly to compensate for the retardation of the succeeding ascent. An obvious example of this mode of construction occurs in the Melbourne valley...in the formation of a permanent way across it, it was held expedient to build, not a horizontal, but a curved viaduct, the lowest point being near the centre, a mode of procedure which has produced a great saving of material, and a considerable gain in the working speed. It is built of brick and stone and consists of seventeen elliptical arches, each thirty feet span'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I

Ruins of the Octagon Building, 1844. Creator: Ebenezer Landells

Ruins of the Octagon Building, 1844. Damage after a fire at New Cross railway station in south-east London: ...at the works attached to the station of the South Eastern, Brighton, and Croydon Railways at New-cross, resulting in the destruction of property to an enormous amount...It consists of an assemblage of vast workshops, large lathe and planing machine rooms, furnace rooms, carpenters and painters rooms, carriage and fire engine houses; and a grand octagonal engine house...The upright walls of the upper story, or lantern, which was supported by four stone pillars, while the body of fire was raging beneath, was so charred and splintered by the intensity of the heat...while the wreck of the several locomotives was to be seen along the extensive line of shedding, presenting a most serious loss of this valuable property of the company'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol I
