    Where once coal tenders drove, today it is easy to cycle. The many bridges bear witness to the wealth of ideas of the region in relation to steel structures. If art also comes from ability, all these bridges are works of art in industrial history.

    The Erzbahnbrücke 9 is the longest bridge construction of the Erzbahn.
    Especially the sight of East Prussia Street is impressive.

    At 344 m, the pillar railway is the longest bridge section of the ore railway. It was built 1918-1919 to connect the Alma colliery to the railway. The bridge's roadway is 14 meters above ground level. The structure spans the Gelsenkirchen-Wanne freight railway line with two half-timbered constructions of 33 meters in length and the Cologne-Minden railway with 45.6 meters. In between there are 21 steel fields with a length of 13.35 meters each, which are bolted to the foundation and could thus be readjusted if mining damage occurred. The repair of the bridge was completed at the end of 2005. The box bridges were lifted during the renovation.
    The picture showed the view from the northwest, about 2/3 of the bridge length can be seen.

    Great bridge on the ore railway line! An eye-catcher from above and below! The ore and coal trains used to travel here between the Rhine-Herne Canal and Bochum!

    The ore railway bridge is located almost exactly in the middle of the beautiful ore railway lines between the Jahrhunderthalle in Bochum and the Rhine-Herne canal.
