The Royal Gorge, Colorado hanging bridge. I understand the tour trains stop on it so the passengers can look around. Early in it's life it was a duel gage line.

@Chaostrain -- I've seen pictures in that location before, had no idea it was from Royal Gorge! Your last picture is taken from nearly the same position as this image from Wikipedia. Apparently in this case the expensive seats were in the gondola rather than the comfort of the passenger car.

I grew up in the 50s, which was the dying of the golden age of railroads. I was lucky enough during that time to experience a couple rides which featured a true dining car and an observation car. Sweet memories!

Yep, must be your order, its put on the flatcar upside down!:p They may intentionally do this to prevent thieves from easily getting to the end door locks.
