The construction of the Walhalla narrow gauge railway line for the Victorian Railways, completed in 1910, called for extensive engineering design and construction. To enable its construction second hand bridging materials were used. This has enhanced the surviving structures engineering and cultural heritage. The paper reviews the design, sources of materials and construction of the railway, in particular the Thomson River bridge. Today, the railway is being rebuilt as a tourist railway. The reconstruction of the bridging to a serviceable condition is reviewed, the future planning and who are carrying out the work.
