    I'm wondering how many on the tour bus were wishing to be a train.

    Ah. I looked up that name. It translates to "Night Train".

    What was the narration about? I heard the word "commercial" and something about ships? Is this in the vicinity of Venice?

    Yes, we are on the bridge heading over into Venice and you are hearing our Tour Guide talking on the bus

    GPS is approximately 45.453361°N 12.299571°E

    That looks like the famous Italian town named after some Saint. I think his name may have been Diego or something like that.

    How long is that bridge? Must be at least around two miles?

    Using Google Earth, I came out at 2.25 miles for the length of the bridge...

    Is this lead unit diesel or electric? The quick glimpse of it's nose, it has a vaguely similar look to Amtrak styling.
