There are dozens of bridges along the route of the Old Ghan Railway line that runs parallel to the Oodnadatta Track.

However this one stood out – possibly because of the substantial amount of water in the creek..

Nevertheless quite a sight in the early morning sun.

From the ground several days later it was no less picturesque.

The bridge crosses the Warrener’s Creek and by today’s standards it looks almost flimsy for a railway bridge.

A bit more information about the Ghan, both old and new can be found here

It’s amazing how a little water transforms this desert country too.
