Scope and Content Part of drawing showing detail of joint between transverse beam, post, bearer and girders on central bay of Aultnaslanach Railway Viaduct, Moy, Inverness-shire Aultnaslanach Railway Viaduct carries the Aviemore to Inverness railway line which was opened by the Highland Railway Company in 1897. It is the only surviving wooden main-line railway viaduct in Britain. The viaduct has survived because it is better suited to the surrounding boggy ground than heavier metal or masonry bridges. Each of the four central frames is made up of six upright posts simply driven into the ground. This shows the joint connecting the transverse beam, upright post, bearer and the double girder below the decking. This is one of the main joints supporting the viaduct and must therefore be very strong. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
