Scope and Content Part of Perth Viaduct, also known as West Railway Bridge, Perth, Perthshire (Perth and Kinross council area) This viaduct was built over the river Tay to replace a timber-arched structure constructed to link the Dundee and Perth Railway with the Scottish Central Railway. It has plate girder spans on cylindrical masonry piers, with a central solid masonry section This view shows part of the southern section of the viaduct, with an Aberdeen to Glasgow train crossing it, hauled by a diesel-electric locomotive built by the North British Locomotive Co Ltd, Glasgow. This was one of the first large plate-girder bridges in Scotland. The south-most span was originally a swing span, to allow for the passage of masted vessels up the Tay. A footbridge runs beside the railway track. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
