Somekind based on th real Kita Senju station (see: http://goo.gl/maps/ogIeT ) At this spot you will see a lot of trains crossing the arakawa river carring a lot of commuters from various destinations to the city core and viceversa.

Not much to say about it. Just thought 2 entrys are not enough for a proper contest, and given that the other two show a heavily crossed river, I thought a single small bridge would be a nice contrast.

Rainbow Bridge - it's a variation of the famous bridge over the Sumida river in Tokyo.
It has two levels like the original, but in my game in 2200 year on the top level the fastest maglev trains rush to the Narita airport.

El Canal de Castilla

(http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/18/61z9.png) (https://imageshack.com/i/0i61z9p)

The Canal of Castile is a navigation canal in the North of Spain. It rounds trough three provinces (Palencia, Valladolid and Burgos), in Castile and León. Its main goal was to improve the wheat transport from inland to northern harbours.

The construction began at the second half of 18th Century, during Fernando VI reign.  At those times, Castile had few population and a weak economy. Also, some industries were built along the Canal, like mills.

Peninsular and Carlist Wars and a weak Treasure made difficult it to finish the project. Also, the Canal became obsolete when the first railways were buit, so its main purpose became irrigation.

Today, it is a touristic atraction, and several boats go trough the Canal. Locks and aqueducts are very interesting.

At this screenshot (a created scenario, not a real game) we can see the Canal, an old mill, and an aqueduct. A modern railway cross the Canal and the road.

I used pak 128 with these Spanish Addons:

- Renfe Serie 597 (blue train)
- Pegaso 5070 SETRA-SEIDA S-14 (coach).
- Barreiros 8235 B Turbo 300 (white and blue truck).
- Pegaso 2082 (lorry).

Robert's bridge - this bridge was built long time ago by famous railway engineer Robert, son of George. BR Class 57 is approaching the bridge, heading for High Peak ore mines, to load iron ore for Casterbridge stell mills.
