Basking in the early autumn sunshine, the St Germans Viaduct looking splendid in the late afternoon light.

Originally a timber viaduct across the River Tiddy just east of St Germans railway station.
106 feet (32 m) high, 945 feet (288 m) long on 16 trestles. Piles were driven into the mud and trestles built on top from four groups of four timber baulks, each group raking inwards towards the top of the trestle. On top of this was a timber truss carrying the track. It was demolished after the line was diverted to a new alignment on 19 May 1908.

ref Cornish Railway Viaducts, Wikipedia.

This was captured from the Trerulefoot-Torpoint road in SE Cornwall.

Taken with a Pentax K110D and Tamron lens, hope you like it and thank you for looking.
