County March Summit [West Highland]

A Sprinter on the climb northwards from Upper Tyndrum to County March Summit approaches the former overbridge. When the line opened the road north of Tyndrum crossed over the railway to run on its east side (left side of this view) until the summit when it recrossed the line. The old road is now the West Highland Way and passes under the line via a cattle creep near the missing bridge. Other nearby road improvements around the 1930s led to Bridge of Orchy station being on a side road instead of the main road north.
