This painting, executed by S G Hughes, shows the Intersection Bridge on the St. Helens & Runcorn Gap Railway, which crosses the Liverpool and Manchester Railway near the foot of the Sutton-inclined plane, near Wides. A train of coal trucks can be seen passing over the bridge, while below it, a train on the Liverpool and Manchester line is just coming into view on the left-hand side. The Bridge’s architect, Charles Vignoles, helped build the Liverpool and Manchester Railway from 1826 to 1830, and from 1830 to 1833, built the St. Helens & Runcorn line. Later, Vignoles built the Kiev Bridge over the River Dnieper in the Ukraine (then part of the Russian Empire), and the Tudela & Bilbao Railway in Spain
