Zürich S-Bahn line S5 train from Rafz to Zürich crossing the river Rhine at Eglisau. The bridge was built between 1895 and 1897. It's total length is 439 metres and has the height of 50 metres above river level. This shot was taken from the south-west side of the bridge. Unfortunately I noticed that this side does not provide a full view of the bridge behind the trees. I wish I had a boat over there.

This bridge is absolutely fascinating, and I think that it's quite impressive to see an ultra modern train to ride on it.
The fact that you are showing the whole scene is highly interesting, allowing us to appreciate the beautiful decor surrounding your main subject. Great timing and captivating presentation.

la foto è sufficiente per apprezzare la grande estensione del ponte e anche l'altezza.
Un ponte molto spettacolare nelle sue dimensioni e nella sua architettura.
Ottimo lavoro esecuzione eccellente

Excellent photo of this, quite, old stone bridge. Perfect captured with the crossing train and the house and boats underneath. There are many similar stonne reailway bridges in Switzerland. I think you should put another trip to Switzerland to your traveling schedule. September & October is the best time. Regards Miro

I know this view quite well! The company I used to work for had in many years its head office right here and I spent many boring meetings there looking at this beautiful bridge. A very fine picture indeed!

I love your point of view here which emphasizes the height of the bridge, which itself is an architectural gem. The train being on the bridge shows us the true size.
Thanks for sharing.
