Spent a while looking over various parapets and through railings for this one, but was unable to see it. Access trackside from the bridge is extremely difficult with security fencing. There is a fair bit of vegetation covering the approx location, and as it's 9 years since rhw saw it, I'm going with it now not being visible from the road/footpath - alwyas assuming I was looking in the right place!
