This paper traces the design evolution and construction of the 2,009m long tubular railway bridge erected across the St. Lawrence River at Montreal in 1854-59. It relates how the world's then greatest bridge construction projet was transformed from a looming failure into a triumph of bridge construction engineering through the introduction of innovative steam-powered construction machinery.
