Just found this pic:

There is a switch right after a curve,
a track that goes all the way to the right track (that goes nowhere)... just to get back to where it was at the beginning,
something built over the right track (one rail and ties still there) and more.

Jose.

Surely that's a length of Peco Set Track being laid in the middle!

Looks to me like a "blast furnace high line",
the open tracks for dumping hoppers and the skip haul to the furnace top on the extreme left are a clue.

In which case all normal rules do not apply and this is true industrial railroading.

I think this is maybe at the US Steel Edgar Allen plant,
which figures in the latest Railroad and Railfan article on the Union Railroad near Pittsburgh PA.
The bridge looks like that on pages 62 and 64.

I don't recall any big truss bridges with a peak like that in the Mon Valley, and the blast furnaces at Edgar Thompson works are not right up against the river. This might even be in Europe.
