Bueatiful stonework.  I have only seen the viaduct from railside.  I assumed it was all concrete and steel.

There are some detail pictures in the posts made around the time of the (fairly recent) fire under part of this viaduct (IIRC due to stockpiling plastic conduit illegally under there) -- that thread contained quite a bit of history and construction detail in it.
