Le Viaduc, Glénic 23380 Fr.

Le Viaduc, Glénic 23380 Fr.
This impressive structure is on a long disused railway line which ran from Guéret to Le Chartre, and although the viaduct took three years to build, the line had a very short life, being opened to traffic in 1906, and finally closed to freight in 1952, although passenger trains ceased to run on this route in 1939.

Viaducts were always challenging structures to build, and when built on a curve, as this one is, especially so. It is just over 200m long, built on a curve of 300m radius, and the sixteen arches carried the single line 20m above the River Creuse. Built entirely from granite, it is now part of a pleasant country walk.

Taken with a 1948 Kodak Tourist converted to 120, on Shanghai GP3 film, developed in divided D23, 5+5mins@21C and scanned @1200dpi on Epson V500

Tom, many thanks!
I've been looking at a few older negs from the Tourist, and I have re-scanned some of them, and this is from a selection!
