Locomotive 5197, a diesel-electric, travels across a bridge, pulling at least one carriage. Below can be seen a carriage belonging to another train. Electric overhead power lines are visible, a result of the Modernisation Plan of 1955, which began the dieselisation and electrification of the railways.
