The Endrick Viaduct
This footpath and National Cycle Network Route 7 runs on top of a large water pipe, which runs over the old stone piers of the original Endrick Viaduct. This carried the Forth and Clyde Junction Railway over the Endrick Water below.
Forth and Clyde Junction Railway :: NS5694

This line, now completely dismantled, covered a distance of 31 miles from Balloch, through Drymen Station (in Croftamie), to Stirling.

In 1853, Royal Assent was given to an Act of Parliament "for making a Railway commencing by a Junction with the Scottish Central Railway at Stirling, and terminating by a Junction with the Caledonian and Dumbartonshire Railway at Alexandria, to be called the 'Forth and Clyde Junction Railway'".

The railway opened in 1856. Passenger services ended for most of the line in 1934, although sections remained open for goods traffic until 1965. See LinkExternal link (at RAILSCOT) for further details, and LinkExternal link (at the same site) for a detailed chronology.
