BRB (Residuary) Limited retains responsibility for around 4000 structures - including bridges, viaducts, tunnels, retaining walls and culverts - that are associated with closed railway lines. These are distributed throughout England, Scotland and Wales. Every structure is examined annually and work is undertaken as required to keep them in a safe condition.
Many structures have been demolished or sold following closure of the railway.
Structures owned by BRB (Residuary) Limited are marked with a distinctive reference number that comprises a route identifier and a structure number. For example, Ingleton Viaduct has reference INL/88 which indicates that this is structure No 88 on the Ingleton Branch.
