A train crossing Altnaslanach Viaduct

This photograph shows a train crossing Altnaslanach Viaduct.

In 1897 this timber bridge was built to take the Highland Railway's new route between Inverness and Perth (via Aviemore) over low-lying boggy ground at Altnaslanach near Loch Moy. Because of the terrain only a light-weight timber structure was feasible. It was refurbished in 2002 with a reinforced concrete deck and piers to support the track. It remains the only timber bridge on a British main line and is Listed Grade A.
