Ah, that's a bit annoying.

This is also a significant structure:

Not least as a tourist attraction for fans of the film 'The Titfield 
Thunderbolt' which was made along this stretch of line.

It can't be too hard to the carto scheme to check railway=abandoned to 
see if it has sub-tags of bridge=* or embankment= etc.

Cheers
