It looks not so dramtatical as it is in real. Between the steel support is nothing and in the 0.5m gap you can fall throw into the river. The train passed myself with a distance of about 20 cm

Hi Michael, yes it was a great luck to have the school-class on the bridge. Much more fun was, when the train come on the brigde, because than most of the kids run away ;-) . When the train passed me slowly, I had a distance of about 20 cm. Maybe the train-driver was afraid, I could move the train out of rail ;-)), but why I should do this?
