314201 crossing Blackhall Bridge, or River Cart Aqueduct, at Blackhall in Paisley on a service to Paisley Canal. It was built in 1810 as an aqueduct on the Glasgow, Paisley and Johnstone Canal, and was built under the direction of Thomas Telford and Johns Rennie. The acqueduct was converted to a railway bridge in 1885 when the Glasgow & South Western Railway opened the Paisley Canal line when the canal was converted into a railway. The bridge was expanded, and the line runs at an angle across the bridge to ease the curvature that the canal had before it was a railway. In the background is the Mile End Mill in Paisley.
