CP Henschel 2-6-4T No. 095 crosses the Rio Douro from Vila Nova de Gaia to Porto on the Ponte Dona Maria Pia, designed by Eiffel and built in 1876/77. It is working the 07:30 stopping passenger train from Espinho to Porto Campanhã, 9th November 1970. The bridge was closed and replaced by a modern concrete structure, the Ponte São João in 1991, though it is still in situ. The matching road bridge can just be seen in the right background. Slide No. 5962.
