Turner has produced this pencil and watercolour drawing with the sketchbook turned upside down relative to the foliation. As with the previous folio (D35371), the drawing depicts the newly built railway viaduct and two Napoleonic Martello towers in the distance. Background topography sketched in pencil has been left unpainted. Turner has used fine strokes of pale red wash to delineate the structure of the viaduct and track. An isolated structure drawn in pencil may represent the beginnings of further harbour buildings. The foreground has been rendered with various hatched markings and broad strokes of red, brown, grey, and green wash layered atop faint pencil notations.
