A blueprint for a new railway bridge over the River Spey at Orton. Although the drawing is undated the bridge was opened in 1906 and so it is likely to have been produced in the preceding couple of years.

The original Spey viaduct was built in the late 1850s to the design of Joseph Mitchell for the Inverness and Aberdeen Junction Railway. The main span measured 70.1m in length and each of the six approach spans, 9.1m. This lattice girder structure replaced it in 1906.
