Description: Crumlin Viaduct, Wales. This early railway viaduct is interesting in that it is constructed entirely from pin-connected iron members. Designed by the engineering firm of Liddell & Gordon, Thomas W. Kennard is credited with the construction, using a modification of the Warren truss. The viaduct was demolished in 1966.
