Bridges and Trains and Steampunk - Oh My!

My wanderings took me through the Dunchies of Glamorgan and Greystoke last night, and I discovered a new structure: a massive rail bridge connecting Glamorgan with Greystoke.

Although the railway appears to be in the testing stage, it has a steam engine ready to roll on the tracks:

For those who want to stretch their legs, the bridge has a pedestrian walkway as well. One can look over the side, at Duke Ambient's pirate ship and wonder if there is any connection between the ship and how he became wealthy enough to afford a duchy...

Of course, that kind of speculation is silly. The Duke has a thriving business selling steampunk-themed gear and airships. I'm certain he would have nothing to do with piracy!
