Hey y'all, dig this, a Swiss railroad bridge folds to clear avalanche path; there's one I didn't see coming, and yet it is so logical and sensible.
Next thought, "Look ma, just like a garden railway!"

"Remarks & Notes Snow clearance on the Furka pass line of the Dampfbahn Furka Bergstrecke (DFB). The Steffenbach bridge, which is folded down during the winter to give the avalanches a free path, is ready for assembling in a few days."
