Railroad viaduct over the rio toro near Salta (Argentina).­

On the viaduct there are two pairs of guard rails, so that in case a train car derails while on the bridge, it will likely still be on rails, to prevent a deadly accident.­

This train line between Salta and San Antonio de los Cobres (Argentina) is sometimes called "Tren a las nubes".­ For more information, read en.­wikipedia.­org/­wiki/­Tren_­a_­las_­Nubes
