The old and the new

This wooden trestle bridge carries the single-track Aviemore-Inverness railway across the Allt Creag Bheithen just N of the former station at Moy. This line was opened by the Highland Railway Company in 1897, and the bridge is now the only surviving structure of its type on a main-line railway in Scotland, possibly in Britain. It was retained due to the difficulty of securing foundations for a steel or masonry bridge. Its preservation in the early 2000's won 2 National ~Railway Heritage awards. I wanted to capture the latest technology crossing one of the oldest and show the wild and boggy nature of the terrain in this part of the North of Scotland.
