SSR bridge - in brown & yellow

Bridge on South Staffordshire Railway Walk

The South Staffordshire Railway Walk is a footpath that makes use of the now disused SSR line, but you can walk beneath its bridges of course, as I was doing here.
Somebody carefully restores the paintwork every so often - even though the railway company itself folded in 1923, giving way to the LNWR. 
These colours - a mud-brown shade, with borders of yellow must have been the colours of the SSR itself, one supposes.

  1. A good number of railway beds here have also been converted into walking and biking trails as well.
