Remarks: Southern Railway built the Wells Viaduct in 1915 to straighten their line through the north Georgia mountains. The massive structure towers 200 feet over the North Fork Broad River but seems dwarfed by the surrounding landscape. Here, NS 153 heads south across the double track bridge after performing setouts and pickups just up the line in the yard at Toccoa.
