Centralbron

Of course, Centralbron isn't a station. It's a two-track railroad bridge that lies between Stockholm Central and Stockholms södra, going past Gamla stan right in the heart of central Stockholm. It is only the most recent of several bridges that have connected the two stations, having been built in the 1950s when a five-track subway bridge was built where the previous railroad bridge was located.

The same as in the previous view, but no train. Behind the openings under the road bridge is Gamla stan subway station. When you stand on the northbound subway platforms there, you can see trains passing on Centralbron.
