NM9081 : Glenfinnan viaduct

taken 44 years ago, near to Glenfinnan, Highland, Great Britain

Glenfinnan viaduct
Glenfinnan viaduct
On the ex-North British line from Fort William to Mallaig you will pass over this stupendous curved viaduct over Glen Finnan. What a pity that children in schools learn much about generals who fought in wars overseas, but little or nothing about the engineers and men who created masterpieces such as this.
