Photographer's Note

Probably the most distinctive feature of Rhätische Bahn railway is the Landwasser Viaduct just north of Filisur. It's a stone arch bridge with internal steel structure, built in 1902. It rises 65 m above the Landwasser river and it's 135 m curve exits straight into a tunnel.

Shot within seconds of the my previous shot, this time towards the back of the train. For best view sit on the right side of a southbound train. And note that you can't open windows of the air conditioned first class panorama cars that you see closer to the mountain face.

(See here for an overall view of the bridge.)
