Rheneas Viaduct is a bridge on the Skarloey Railway.


The Railway Series

Rheneas Viaduct was built in 1865 and, along with the nearby tunnel, was the major engineering feature of the line. The viaduct spans a large, spectacular gorge. A stepped path descends into the gorge and goes under the viaduct.

In 1961, Duncan stalled on the viaduct with a passenger train out of jealousy for not being polished. Skarloey had to come to Duncan’s rescue.

Thomas & Friends

When Boulder got loose from Boulder Quarry, he rolled across Rheneas Viaduct after Rheneas, which caused him to crash into a siding.



  • Rheneas Viaduct is based on Dolgoch Viaduct on the Talyllyn Railway.
  • Rheneas Viaduct was used to represent a location on the Mid Sodor Railway in the fourth series episodes, Granpuff and Bulldog.
  • According to concept art, the model of the viaduct produced for the fourth series is eight feet long and four feet tall.
