    Stourbridge Lion, our one and only Lion Hearted,

    Thanks for having us along on this virtual railfanning vacation. Oh, I know it's more then that. You two have fun and keep the train shots coming.

    Does that concrete provide some sort of support for the rock? Huge slabs and even a couple of pillars. Must be a serious problem area.

    This is near the summit of Brenner, Pass so yes you are seeing supports of various sorts...

    They must have a lot of geologic issues.

    This mountain pass is at the border of Italy and Austria and the peaks are around 11,000 feet. Now keep in mind we had left Venice at Sea Level so one does climb up in a hurry and the slopes are steep

    Interesting how large a gap there is under what I presume to be the front of that.

    Almost most seems as though some component is missing. Coupling equipment or something else.
