Butgenbach Viaduct, Belgium

Buttgenbach Viaduct in Belgium is a rail bridge on Railroad 45A of Belgium. The Railroad  connected Weywertz in Belgium and the German – Belgian border at Losheimergraben. The bridge was built between 1910 – 1912 by Germans, mainly for military purposes. The railway gradually declined and by 2001 only a tourist train offered a service for passengers. On 1 February 2004 the line finally closed in 2006 and 2007, the railroad broken. The viaduct however still remains.

Locomotive No 201001 with a passenger train  is seen traveling over the viaduct
