A cream-coloured painted diecast metal 00-gauge Hornby Dublo concrete Footbridge D1.

The bridge has two corner-level stages that are lower then the main crossing walkway.

Construction

The bridge is diecast in three pieces: the centre span and the two supports, and the two sets of leading steps. The flights of steps are fixed to the central piece with a screw through the centre of each "landing" stage.
