Couldn't see it either - it should be within 1m of track level (comparing survey height with height of FB on station). There is a cut mark on the road parapet of the same bridge (BM0931) which is on the OS database. The PB is not on the database so I conclude probably destroyed.

Couldn't see it from the end of the platform, or at least from as far along the platform as I was allowed to go.
