Remarks & Notes 
The rising sun illuminates the spray and the mist cloud from the Victoria Falls: an impressive and colorful natural spectacle. Garratt steam engine 15A #414 "Ubhejane" ("Black Rhinoceros") with its NRZ passenger train is crossing the 198 m (650 ft) long, (with a main arch spanning 156.50 m (513.5 ft)) and 128 metres (420 ft) high Victoria Falls Bridge between Zimbabwe and Zambia. As part of Sir Cecil Rhodes's Cape to Cairo railway scheme, this bridge was prebuilt in England by the Cleveland Bridge & Engineering Company and its construction was completed in 1905. This picture was taken from Zambia.

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
