Warehouse Wednesday: Burton pipe bridge

Burton pipe bridge

Stepping off Burton-on-Trent station last weekend, I couldn't resist taking photos of this pipe bridge.

Yes, I know, I'm weird. I should prefer the over-restored brick warehouse. Everyone takes pictures of that (I know I have) so here's the uglier but more interesting bits nearby.

Lots of detail here for modellers. I wonder why the pipes are covered as they cross the railway. Safety in case anything drops off? Protection for the metalwork from evil diesel fumes?

Whatever, that ribbed covering would be a pig to make.
