Railway Bridge Damage and Graffiti
. . . . by Gordon Smith   sent 8th February 2016

I recall that the driver had stopped in Ormesby next to a school friend of mine to ask the way to ICI.
   On the other side of the Bridge used to be painted the slogan 'Beware of Bevin' - or was it 'Bevan'?
   On the inside a disaffected railwayman had painted his thoughts on Doctor Beeching.    Perhaps this was done when an engine ran out of steam - which was a fairly regular occurrence.
