Disused Railway Bridge

Disused Railway Bridge (Google Maps)

The bridge was part of the railway that went from Dunblane to Perth. The bridge is located on the section of line between St. Fillans station and Dalchonzie halt. This section of the railway was known as the "Lochearnhead, St. Fillans and Comrie Railway" and was in use from 1897 to 1951. The main road that goes from Comrie and through St. Fillans crosses the bridge.

For a long time, the small cutting before the bridge was walkable but overgrown. However, in 2016, the former trackbed was tarmacked as part of a national cycle route that wants to tarmac the whole railway to be used as a bike and walking path.

Standing on the other side of the bridge. This section of the railway right up to Dalchonzie halt is now a farm track. The bridge opening would have been much wider when trains used it.
A picture I took back in 2013 as I walked through the cutting.
Another picture of the cutting as we approach the bridge. This view is looking towards Dalchonzie halt.
A picture I took in 2016 in the cutting towards the bridge. The newly tarmacked path.
