Thank you Andy

It is amazing what difference a bright sunny day will make, and of course the sun is on this side of the loco. A lot of thought went into finding this spot, so I am really pleased that you like it.

Have a good week!

Thank you Steve,

I am really honoured by your visit here. While there are a lot of canals in Holland, there was only one such crossing on this railway, and it is this swing bridge!
They also burn smokeless fuel....

Enjoy your week!

Thank you Jaap,

certainly the German practice of painting the wheels red helps!!

What a wonderful capture my dear Peter!!

It looks there is an interesting bridge. I wonder about the two different constructions of this bridge. (right side and left side) Maybe they were built in different time...

A big YS from me!

My dear Füsun,

Thank you so much for visiting this railway, and of course for the awards.
I think you are right about the bridges. The locomotive is on a swing bridge, which looks quite old. The concrete on the right hand bridge looks newer. I think that at some time the bridge over the road was re-designed to give extra height which is why the girders look barely strong enough to support this big locomotive.

Love Peter
