Scope and Content Part of drawing showing west elevation 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 bridge 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 complex design of the trestles supporting the viaduct. The structure relies upon straining beams and beam stiffeners for stability. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
