....Trains and a boat and a loooong bridge....

The Moerdijk-rail-bridges are important bridges for the High-Speed-trains between Amsterdam and Paris. Because of the speed the rails needs to be replaced at certain times. Now they are up to date again and ready to go.

En effet, ils ont l'air d'aller vite.
Picturit: They do indeed.
Astrid.

Picturit: We were lucky to just be there at the right time. It was a great view. Lots of water too.

Love this Homage to Transport, Astrid.
Picturit: Trains and boats are very very important in the Netherlands. We have an infrastructure that is pretty good.
Astrid.
I love the lines in your photo... and the video was great fun!
Picturit: Don't you love it. I so love the areal views that they have taken from drones...
Astrid.
As I often say, leave it to the Dutch. This is so high-tech. Great timing, Astrid.
Picturit: Ginnie, we got there in time to see these trains 'flying over'... We passed this bridge on our way to Paris, with Don and Ruth..... smile

Brilliant Astrid!

As you know, I am a fan of these things..
Picturit: I know and this is amazing also how they built this many years ago. Some engineering indeed. Thank you, Chris.
Astrid.
On croirait voir la vitesse ...Bravo pour ta photo !
Bonne journée
Picturit: Thank you for your kind words, Claudine. Sometimes we get lucky.
Have a great evening and weekend ahead of you.
Astrid.
One day we will have HS2. This will be built destroying ancient woodlands and blighting many people's lives. But it will allow a few people to travel at high speed between London and Birmingham.

I like your picture
Picturit: I know what you mean. We lost some land too and they had problems with making the tunnels water tight.... water was leaking in, They solved it now and it is a good connection, as a matter of fact, Ginnie and I and her sister and brother-in-law travelled this bridge to get to Paris last year.
Thank you Bill.
Astrid.

Good to see the Astrid express overtaking this conventional express. What a long expanse of water the railway has to cross.
Picturit: It was a grand view when we walked up the dike to see what was 'behind it'...
Thank you, Chad.
Astrid.
Oh, where this could take you and fast....
Picturit: To Paris, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Brussels, Antwerp and that all within three and a half hour with the Thalys (High Speed)
We are lucky to have this around.
Astrid.
It goes without saying I like this, how lucky to get two trains at the same time.
Picturit: .....and a boat... we were there at the right time.
Astrid.

A fabulous capture smile
Picturit: Thank you, Cherry. I love trains and this came as a surprise.
Astrid.
The layering in this image is brilliant!
Picturit: Thank you, Robin. We were so lucky that some guy at the parking lot told us to climb over the dike and enjoy the view... duhhh... did we know ....
Astrid.
