It is a little eerie when you are hanging off the back of a moving train car and everything goes completely dark.

But what a SHOT!!!! That rickity-appearing bridge would provide some "healthy" cleansing for ME, I'm afraid!

Thanks! I was too busy taking pictures to worry about the bridge. But I had to stop taking pictures in the tunnel as I could not see a thing. Now that worried me a bit.
