 Abstract-A detailed examination of the stone railway bridge Myslinka, built approximately in 1878, was performed. The Bridge is on the railway line Plzeň -Tachov, the Czech Republic. The bridge is created by two parallel vaulted tubes made from sandstone where a frequented road goes through under one of them and Myslinsky brook flows under the second one. In 2006 a reinforced concrete frame structure was inbuilt to the bridge portal. Lengths of the both tubes are about 45.5 m, widths are

On the basis of the diagnostic works the structure is evaluated from the point of view of moisture, amount of water soluble salts, strengths of sandstone. There is also a visual observation of a condition of the structure itself performed. There are also recommendations for a consequent procedure in case of a revitalization stated in the end of the paper.
