Lewisham Railway Viaduct.

From Engineering Heritage New South Wales


This pair of trusses formed part of the 1886 railway viaduct over Long Cove Creek.

Designed by Max Taylor for the existing lines branch of the NSW Government railways.

They are pin-jointed trusses developed in America by Squire Whipple.

They carried suburban rail services for 107 years until replaced in 1993 and are the only deck Whipple trusses in Australia.
