This wonderful bridge was built about 1861 for the so-called Main Line in Victoria, Australia which ran and still runs from Melbourne to Bendigo. It is great to observe a train rushing across this impressive viaduct while you are in a car passing through Taradale on the Calder Highway, which I have done several times this year.
