I am going to sit on the fence, well, the parapet. I think it should be grey, but with just a hint of rust - hardly noticeable - unless you are looking for it.  :)

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

As a young lad (aged 7-10 or so) I spent much time gazing over that bridge.
There was always so much going on. And so many numbers to write down.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

So far it looks like 2 for gray, 1 for rust, and one mainly gray with a hint of rust. Thanks guys.

Id hazard a guess Leon that in 1939 that bridge would have been in excellent order, probably in grey with not a hint of rust.
The GWR would not, I think, approve much of rust especially as the bridge is so prominent from the station.

Up until the demise of Brisitsh Railways (later British Rail) the infrastructure was always kept in very good order.  Sadly, since the franchise system came into effect, everything seems to have gone downhill very rapidly.  The whole network looks really tatty nowadays.
With kind regards

I think the jury is in. I'm going to re-paint the bridge gray (pewter) but allow maybe just a faint trace of rust here and there - where it looks reasonable to me. Thanks to those who commented!

In addition to his impeachment, President Trump will be presenting his "State of the Union" speech to a joint session of Congress in a couple of weeks. Which has reminded me that perhaps I should give a State of Wiltsbury Junction speech - soon? Maybe I'll do it, complete with photographs, at about the same time Trump rises to the podium. That would coincide with the two year anniversary of my commitment to construct a railway layout; it won't be the culmination of the building of that layout, however. I do see myself finishing by the third anniversary, however. That is in keeping with my revised completion schedule from a year ago. If I manage the speech, it will be live from NGF. Stay tuned!
