Remarks & Notes 
Brahmaputra bridge

The mighty Indian river Brahmaputra changes its name once reaching Bangladesh (to Jamuna), but the eastern diversion is still called Old Brahmaputra. Here the second of four daily Container Express trains from Dhaka to Chittagong crosses the colonial time bridge. Behind the bridge you can see the construction work for a parallel bridge to double track the line. The General Motors loco is from 1956. We followed the train and got it on the even more impressive bridge over the Meghna, see picture 663822.
