Title

The first railway bridge over Werribee River at Werribee

Description

The original railway bridge was an iron lattice construction across the Werribee River. It had a walking path about one meter below the bridge.

Children used to stand on the path to look up and watch the underside of the steam trains go past. It was removed seemingly overnight, and new modern bridge added.

The original blue stone piers are still standing beside todays railway bridge.
