Remarks & Notes 
An impressive and colorful spectacle. During sunrise, 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 meters (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. One of my favorite railroad image in 2018!
