Curves swinging back and forth on a modern era non-electrified single track line without conceivable reason? We´ve got them.

Exactly. Give me a castle, and I give you a tunnel:

Hi Pete,

I do that sometimes. I go through photos on http://www.bahnbilder.de/ or http://www.railfaneurope.net/ and find consists that I can copy with the stock I have available.

Hello Ak,

When we were in Wertheim in 2011 it seemed a noteable site because of the liability to extreme floods over the years :see the date of the highest flood record inscribed on the wall in the image below. This may relate to it's position at the confluence of the Tauber and Main rivers.


UserPostedImage


Perhaps this predisposition to significant flooding is the reason for the numerous pillar supports on the bridge?

Nice old medieval town, the buildings reminded me of the Faller buidings on my layout!

Ak,
I think the close spacing of the pillars is necessitated by the apparent curve in the bridge. If too far apart the bridge would tip to the outside of the curve when a load is put on it.

Regards,
Roger

Looks like triple wrongly parking: on the wrong side, on the pedestrian walk, and in a no-stopping area.
There is an arrow on the traffic sign, so the loco is in an area that is not affected by the traffic sign. It seems to be moving anyway ...

Regards
Tom

A German „Keilbahnhof" (literally: wedge station) - a station located between branching tracks - offers a solution to space problems. There is for example Tornesch station near Hamburg, where a single track branch line joins a double track main line.
Tornesch.png
While it saw passenger traffic in the past (see railcar on curve in front of station building), the branch line serves nowadays only industries.
lokpu-tornesch-Kopie-n.jpeg
This design saved a lot of turnouts.

Dausenau in the Lahn river valley, 1953.

How many platform tracks should a decent passenger station on a double-track mainline have under an overall roof? Two? And how many turnouts? Zero?
