It was not easy to find this spot

 Not far from the bridge the railway was re-built to take a more straight route in a tunnel
 The tunnel named Glödbergstunnel is 1,7km long and it was built in 1995. Here with train 41905 and Traxx F140 locomotive 185 706

 I'm visiting Nyåker where I found a museum about the nearby bridges
 The old railway station
 Nyåker is famous for manufacturing Ginger biscuits (Pepparkakor), 35% are exported to USA.
 It is possible to buy these biscuits in a local shop

 Most trains are now passing through the new tunnel, but the old railway route is still there, working as a passing loop
