If you think about a railway bridge, you'd probably imagine a nice smooth bridge with water on either side which would prove to be a great scenery or an amazing location to click photographs while you're passing by. Some railway bridges may have water on either side, but that doesn't mean they are beautiful. They may also look freaky as hell.
But the condition of these bridges is different. Let's see the 10 railway bridges that will scare you like anything.
This 23 miles long railway bridge is located between Kuranda and Queensland, Australia. It is no longer used for commuting but mainly as a tourist attraction. It takes travelers nearly 2 hours to pass this bridge and also consists of a stop point near a waterfall during the ride.
It runs in Jakarta and if you're somebody who's scared of heights, dare not look into the valley below. This train also had a major accident in 2002 when it derailed and fell into the valley.
It is known as the 'train of the clouds' since it is the 3rd highest bridge in the world. It is nearly 13,850 feet above sea level. It connects the North-Central border of Argentina to Chile.
Built in the 19th century, this bridge is directly upon the Indian Ocean. The train travels very slowly over this bridge so that it doesn't get swept into the waters by the storm. A major accident took place in 1964 when a cyclone derailed the train and it was swept by the ocean.
Located in New Mexico, this railroad connects Colorado and New Mexico. It is the longest railroad to hold up a steam engine and the mere height at which the train travels is scary.
It is located in Alaska and this train has had some serious accidents in a very short span of time. Derailments and accidents have left many people dead and injured but this train still continues to work.
Just a 3-foot wide railroad located in Colorado, this railroad route has a total distance of 4 miles that is nearly 6,000 feet above sea level.
With only 3 feet and 6 inches in width, this railroad is thousands of feet above the ground. Travelers may find this railroad to be very scenic and beautiful at some points, but equally scary at others.
This railroad is located in Thailand and has a length of nearly 258 miles. It is known to be The Death Railway owing to the number of workers who died while making it. The estimated number of deaths was 12,621.
