Dear Network Rail Limited,

Network Rail owns the Grade II* listed Victoria Viaduct spanning the River Wear on the mothballed Leamside Line. (List entry number 1354978).

Given this viaduct is nationally significant because of its heritage value, I would be grateful if you could you supply me with the following information:
