Historic bridges

By the time I got to the Ruhr area, I only got to check out the Duisburg-Hochfeld railway bridge, where I ended my previous visit. It’s an interesting
structure, mainly because of the original 1870’s bridgehead standing next to the bridge currently in use.
DB’s 185 192 is crossing the Rhine river with an intermodal train, probably heading south. There are so many lines running in the Ruhr area, it’s hard to know
which line is used by which trains. That’s another good excuse to return and go find out!
