Stockport Viaduct, built in the 1830s, is still a vital link in the London - Manchester rail line, carrying trains five times the original design weight, and running at three times the speed. Said to be the largest brick structure in Europe, and a tribute to Victorian engineering. They had no concept of stress calculations then, so they just built things bloody solid! Compare this with 1960s motorway viaducts which are having to be virtually rebuilt due to stress fractures.
