The part of the layout that gives it its title is essentially a four track section bounded by two girder bridges with Greatford level crossing in between. One of these is an occupational bridge (Banthorpe ) and the other is a road bridge. The latter (Casewick) carries the road from Barholm to Uffington just to the north of the A16 at Tallington. Both were extensively photographed prior to the models being constructed out of white card. They are still the same as they were at the time the layout is designed to represent but ,of course, the roads and girders were elevated slightly when the ECML was electrified. Some old fences still exist around the ends of the spans and recently vehicle safety barriers have been installed no doubt to comply with current H&S regulations. The card is the type that is used in packing and is useful in that it is smooth white on one side and is easy to cut with a craft knife to give fine detail.  Further photos of the sequence of construction will follow.
