Amazing they dont have derailments....
Or do they?
Thats just incredible....
The worst I ever saw was in Ballarat where the tramline crossed the railway line and the welds holding bthe tramline in place broke so therw was a loos bit of track held in place by a bit of gravel.....

To be fair, it is the same photographing technique that is used to show the Maumee's bumps and sags - you use a telephoto lens. I've ridden a very similar line in Moscow years ago- right through mud and water and of course you feel the swaying and bumping, but it is not as hefty as the forced perspective makes you think. Have a look at this for comparison
