Rumeling - Dala Viaduct

On the road and across this bridge the former railway went upwards to the hamlet Rumeling. After the bridge, the tracks led away from the road (left foreground) on its own path. The bridge has still the same width, but the road was broadened later. One of the aspects which had contributed to the decommissioning of the railway, was the circumstance that the train ran 2.5 km on the road. This resulted in conflicts with the road traffic. From here to an abandoned loop tunnel it's about 350 m upward. Switzerland, March 26, 2016. (2/20)
