Replica commemorative plaque for the conservation of the Laigh Milton Viaduct on the Kilmarnock & Troon Railway.
A DVD (entitled Laigh Milton Viaduct Reconstruction 1995-1996) was made of the entire conservation project and provides a detailed visual account of all aspects of the works undertaken. The DVD lasts for 2 hr 12 min and was filmed and donated by Peter Longman. Peter’s team at Strathclyde Regional Council (and latterly East Ayrshire Council) provided the Resident Engineer to supervise the works. During this time Peter made regular visits to the site to monitor and film the work in progress.
