fbio, thanks a lot! Ciao, May

Marilyn, thank you very much! I hoped the train would come, but as many times afterwards, it rarely came, when I waited. Often, just as I drove off, it came in sight and I couldn't stop in time. ;) Warm regards, May

Jacques, thank you so much! So nice to see you on my travels! Amitiés, May

Great capture, none the less, May. The lovely structure makes a nice contrast against the wonderful green landscape.

It's hard to imagine Switzerland (Suisse) without bridges, viaducts and tunnels. If I ever get the opportunity to visit, I hope I can capture pictures as nice as yours, May!

greetings from northern California,

Julie, Paul, Anne, Tamás, Antonietta, Fai, thank you all so much for your great comments! When travelling, be it by car or train, you won't even notice, because they are below you. ;) I have taken some old roads to show a few of these constructions - I'll upload them sometime later.

I hope you all get the chance one day to see them in reality. :) A few days ago I was able to take a photo of the train on the viaduct, though the position wasn't quite the same as on this one. I am still away for a few days more. I'll see your galleries, when I am at home again.

Best greetings to all of you, May

Blai, thank you very much for all your comments! A few days ago, I got the train on it as well. Until later, May

Wonderful shot of this railway viaduct. I saw many of them in numerous documentaries about Swiss Railroads in Rail Away! And almost always about the Swiss Railroads in wintertime. Loved it!

Greetings, Jan
