Name and dates

Comrie Viaduct (1901-1951)

Opened on the Lochearnhead, St Fillans and Comrie Railway.


Description

This was a single track viaduct to the west of Comrie station on the extension west to Lochearnhead [2nd]. It was a mass concrete viaduct. From east to west the viaduct had two concrete arches, a plate girder over the main road, six concrete arches, a large girder section over the River Earn and a final two concrete arches. The concrete was dressed to give the appearance of stone, a characteristic style seen elsewhere on other surviving bridges on this former line.

It partially still stands.

A little to the west the line re-crossed the Earn by the Ross Viaduct.
