Old railway trestle bridge

There used to be a railway to Yarra Glen (and on to Healesville) but due to the economic viability it got shut down. It’s a pity as there were as series of these trestle bridges made from wood that spanned the low-lying areas of Yarra Glen which would get flooded in winter. There are only a few left now. Recently the large one near the railway station was burnt down in the 2009 bushfires.
