That is pretty cool. When i was there it seemed like the Spanish rail system is really alive and well and continuing to expand, especially their AVE "high velocity" lines. They completed the AVE line from Madrid to Toledo when i was there and were working very hard on an AVE from Madrid to Barcelona. They seemed to spare no expense in building these lines and i saw lots of huge bridges over valleys and cool tunnels while traveling around.

My guess is that the bridge in the picture is from one of those new AVE lines. Thanks for your post!
