Pamban Island Bridge - Rameshwaram, India
« on: January 13, 2013, 12:36:27 PM »

The Pamban rail bridge connects the island of Pamban and the town of Rameshwaram, to the Indian mainland. Built between 1887 and 1912, it has since been joined by a road bridge, which runs alongside it. Here, a train crosses the bridge on the way from Rameshwaram to Madurai.

Nice shot, but are you sure it's India? There's nobody clinging to the sides or roof of the train  ;)

Stunning, really. You seem to love diagonals, trains and dramatic skies (ref: Hump Day) and it shows.

Congratulations!
