you can see a train engine in the centre distance looking on, wistfully.

A nice transformation for the bridge.
«Louis» noticed there is another bridge in the background of your photo - so you actually posted a "two-fer"...
«Louis» thanks you for your contribution to Sunday Bridges.

It's good that the bridge found a use but sad that rail travel has gone out of fashion.

I agree with both Louis and Martha's comments. Your photos are very good.

I like that rusty color on the first bridge. Awesome shot!

You certainly cannot tell how old the railway bridge is from the top. It just looks like a regular and wide footpath. Love the shot from the side showing the rust and discoloration. Beautiful capture. genie

What a lovely way to put an old railway bridge to use. It seems like a nice place to hang out on. I can imagine being a kid and wanting to play there. This is a good urban innovation.

What a great idea! Thanks for capturing it on film and sharing it with us.

this is a good transformation. the tracks are now useful instead of getting into disrepair and becoming an eyesore.

A lot of these old abandoned railway right of ways are being turned into into hiking trails. I always wonder if some day train travel will become popular again and they might ask for the trails to be returned.
