The railway line that runs on the viaduct serves as a key transport route linking the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh. In 1869 the Omoa and Midcalder Line was opened. The Omoa and Midcalder Line to Addiewell followed in 1882. Cleland was served with two railway stations. The first was Bellside Station, and the second was Omoa Station, named after the iron works near there. Omoa Station was then retitled Cleland Station.
The viaduct itself is visible from the main road in Cleland. However, the view is now obscured somewhat by a number of houses which were built circa 2015. The ‘CLELAND’ signage on this stunning print is, of course, not the official branding used today but it will be familiar to many. And the only clue as to the age of the viaduct is the reinforced steel framing around two of the pillars.
This signed print is one of a limited edition. It’s recorded on Hahnemühle stock via a large format mimeograph and generally referred to as Giclée prints of premium quality. The paper is white 100% a-cellulose with a distinct textured surface and the premium matt inkjet coating more than meets the highest industry standards vis-à-vis density, colour gamut, colour graduation and image sharpness, while preserving the extraordinary touch and feel of genuine art paper. The editions depicted on Iconic Reserve are not representative of scale and solely for the purpose of suggestive display.
