Old Photograph Nine Arches Viaduct Port Glasgow Scotland
Old photograph of the Nine Arches Viaduct by Port Glasgow, Glasgow, Scotland. The Greenock and Ayrshire Railway Company opened a line from Glasgow St Enoch to Princes Pier in Greenock in 1869. Unlike the Glasgow, Paisley and Greenock Railway line which approached the town along the Clyde coast, this line ran inland, passing through Paisley, Johnstone, Bridge of Weir and Kilmacolm before dropping down the hill through Port Glasgow on the way to Princes Pier in the west end of Greenock. The Nine Arches viaduct over Devol Glen was demolished by explosives in 1970.
