The Spey Viaduct, Moray, now part of the National Cycle Network. The fixings for the railway telegraph wires can be seen either side of the main span (Bob Prigg)
The main line through Killin Junction ran from Callander to Crianlarich. The 12 arch Glen Ogle Viaduct now carries a high quality cycle trail. May 2006. (Bob Prigg)
This photograph shows the new surface on the deck of Glen Ogle Viaduct. May 2006 (Bob Prigg)
This classic view of Glen Ogle Viaduct in the landscape makes it very clear why such a structure was needed here. (Bob Prigg)
Big Water of Fleet Viaduct. An impression of the viaduct’s size can be gained from the shadows straddling the valley below. As can seen, the viaduct was strengthened with bricks and old rails to cope with the volume of traffic that formerly used it (Bob Prigg)
Loch Skerrow Halt was a passing loop on the line between Big Water of Fleet and Castle Douglas. Because of the loop, it was provided with a signal box and water tower, although the locality remains very remote (Bob Prigg)
Glenluce Viaduct about 8 miles east of Stranraer, is another striking feature on the Port Road, which is notable almost throughout for its extensive engineering (Bob Prigg)
The Caledonian Railway’s Leith North branch is of Lindsay Road Bridge, a gently curving girder structure on stone piers situated between Granton Road and the Leith North terminus (Ralph Rawlinson)

The island platform of Crow Road station has an almost subterranean look about it, accentuated by the wide road overbridge which crosses it. The station’s gloomy appearance reflects the fact that it was served by a railway built largely in tunnels and cuttings. 2016 (Chris Jennings)
This disused station is Kelvinside, which was reached after a tunnel of the same name; Kelvinside station has survived very well, having been converted into a restaurant. 2016 (Chris Jennings)
The rear view of Kelvinside station spans the old railway formation. 2016 (Chris Jennings)
Kelvinside Station and evidence of the covered staircase which led down to platform level, etched into the cutting wall. As can be seen, the trackbed here has been partially infilled, and sloped access created. 2016 (Chris Jennings)
