Chilean Bridges: Carahue Railroad Bridge

Next to the pedestrian bridge in Carahue is a very long railroad viaduct that ends in a steel through truss over the Imperial River.

The railways seem to be having a hard time in Chile. This bridge doesn't appear to be used, and repairs to rails doesn't seem to be going on as quickly as repair of toll roads.

Most of the tracks have a cantilever for providing electricity to power the locomotive.
