Rail Loops one line over itself where are more ?
Author: mundo

Have a request from Mexico contact who is doing a brief story on the "Loop" or "El Lazo"  that is on the Chihuahua Pacific Copper Canyon Line.

He asks where else in North America is a similar loop like that on Tehachapi in California, that he can include in his story.  Where one line crosses over itself.
Also posted on the Eestern and Western pages.

You can respond via private messages if you wish.

Thanks

Trinity Loop in Newfoundland Province. Although the narrow gauge lines in NFLD have been abandonded since 1988, the section featuring Trinity loop was preserved as a museum. At last report, however, the museum has been closed for several years and the site is in disrepair...

If you want to expand beyond North America there many are loops like that in Switzerland and there is also one in New Zealand.
