I can't recall seeing anything like that anywhere I've been. I hope it will be preserved even if trains no longer use it.

we've been thrown head on into summer this week. Evidently it is the hottest recorded start to November. Looks like summer is going to be a hot one.

Great view of this old bridge! This is the time where it begins more to be like Fall weather - in the 30ties and 40ties at night and early morning in the mountains where I live. Thank you for your awesome post about the trains for All Seasons - some of my comments had trouble "sticking"!

I don't know if I would have fancied a train going over my head whilst driving over the bridge!
Have a brilliant day :)
