Rail bridge swept away in 1989 floods

THE 127-year-old Inverness Railway Bridge collapsed under the force of flood water in February.

It happened less than two hours after two trains carrying 33 passengers had passed over it.

Just 50 yards of twisted rails across the middle of the river were left in the aftermath.

Elsewhere, the Greig Street footbridge was closed and homes were damaged as a result of the deluge.
