Disused Railway Bridge in Ängelholm

The bridge once carried the now closed Ängelholm (also spelt Engelholm) to Klippans Railway in Sweden. The railway opened in 1904 and closed in 1953. In its most active years the railway had 12 passenger trains and 2 cargo trains daily.

What's left today:
Most of the railway has been transformed into the Klippanvägen, main road 13. The road follows most of the former trackbed and passes the old Munka-Tjungby Station. In Ängelholm you can see the former trackbed, too. Near the still active Ängelholm Station you can see the curve of the former trackbed (now a cycle path). Also in Ängelholm you can see the embankment and one bridge abutment near some apartments.

Otherwise you can drive along most of the former trackbed's path.

In this view you can see the single bridge abutment in Ängelholm.

A closer look.
Standing on top of the abutment and looking at where the other section of the bridge would have been. Beyond this point, the road goes along the former railway.
The overgrown trackbed near the abutment.
Looking at the old embankment and a water tower used by the steam trains standing on the embankment.
