Lane Bridge (1864-1965)
This was three span timber viaduct built over the Carlingwark Lane, a watercourse. As the land was bog a relatively lightweight timber viaduct was needed. Also known as Carlingwark Viaduct.
The wooden piers of the viaduct were later replaced in iron.
The viaduct was a short way south west of Castle Douglas.
There was a derailment just to the west in 1884, a mail train derailing and driver and fireman drowning when the engine came to rest upside down in the bog.
