Photographer's Note

Gotthardbahn (5/5)

Near Wassen the Reuss valley gets steeper and extra curves had to be added to railway route to gain the needed height. At first the line makes a full 360 degrees turn inside a spiral tunnel. Soon after follows two long 180 degree loops that make the line pass by church of Wassen and over Meienreuss river three times. Here's the middle one of those bridges. The highest one is visible on the upper left corner, where this southbound train will arrive after turning back inside the over 1km long Legginstein tunnel.

This picture is not tilted, the bridge is on a grade.
