Contest #836: the Veresk Bridge in northern Iran

Contest 836 continued the series theme of arches (if you didn’t figure that out yet) with the spectacular Veresk Bridge in northern Iran on the main line between Tehran and Gorgan. The railway line snakes across the mountains and is in use today, despite being opened for use in 1935. The Google Earth image below shows the railway line in the Veresk Bridge area.

The railway is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, and contain 174 large bridges, 186 small bridges and 224 tunnels, including 11 spiral tunnels. The Veresk Bridge stands 110 meters above the valley, its arch measures 66 meters and the overall length of the bridge is 112 meters.

  1. I’ve now been playing WOGE for more than 1 year. The weak point of WOGE is, i did NOT learn ANYTHING about HOW to find “difficult” places.

    When we see the picture 836, we only see a railway arch bridge (there are 1000s of them around the world) and probably in an Asian country (thanks to the roof colors)… That’s all imho.

    Can you ask players who found that bridge in Iran to explain HOW they did it!? …so I can FINALLY learn something from that game! Thanks.
