This is a perfect example of something which should be covered by OHM,
but a stop date on the abandoned track bed would flag that information.
The missing bit should have information somewhere that shows when it was
lifted and the new structures added. It would not surprise me if the
service road foundation was the old track bed anyway? What IS there
needs mapping ;)
