- Viaducts near you…
It’s not as scenic as the ones above but this is local to me:
Stockport Viaduct, the largest brick built viaduct in Europe, 27 arches. When it was built it was the biggest one in the world. But it’s not as scenic as my favourite one of Glenfinnan (the one used in one of the Harry Potter films):

After my rant the other day about my mrs which of course I was totally being a d 1ck here’s a nice thread about viaducts…On a previous thread I mentioned viaducts near me…so here are three I’m in the suburbs of North London

a few weeks back I caught the train out of Melbourne then rode south to the coast taking in the Camperdown – Timboon Railtrail
I suspect some guy from local tourist office had job of putting that old trolley cart there and probably didn’t make the 10km or so back to the nearest dirt road

Have to add that just up the road from where live commuter trains cross something similar (and I’d be crossing myself if I did the journey every day)unfitgeezerMember

I’ve ridden under the one in Finchley Central twice a day for many years. It’s cool how the tube goes across it.
I also drive under it a fair few times a week and occasionally go on the train above but luckily the misery(Northern) line is not my local line anymore I’ve moved up to the Piccalilli (Piccadilly )line far more sensiblePosted 4 years agoIdleJonSubscriber

Possibly one of the most recognisable viaducts in the UK – grew up just down the road from there. And I *never* got up to mischief throwing things from it, oh no.
Is it Pontrhydyfen viaduct? 😀 Sorry Johndoh, I don’t know where that is?
Oh by the way, Pontrhydyfen Viaduct, just down the road from Afan:
