Our railroad tourist is on the move again.  Can you guess where he is?  This is a spot that I'd love to travel to.  Maybe when the kids are a bit older.

Find it in Google Earth and give me the coordinates.  First to answer gets a gold star on their forehead.

Parkdesigner got it, but I'll give the coordinates: 46°15'14.26"N, 10° 7'40.82"E (as measured from the center of the viaduct).
And, just for fun, here's a video I shot riding around it back in January: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzyY_jVIlto
And here's a shot going through:

Also, a shot from the Landwasser Viaduct further up the line:

Edit: looks like I'm too slow! Oh well...Enjoy the video!

Oh, I thought you meant what specific building he's in. I imagined him hiding in some back room closet or under a area rug to throw us off.

Hi James,
Your photos and video are spectacular! They make me wish I could hop on that railway right now. Checking with the Swiss Rail the cost seems to be about 27 to 44 Euros, does that seem about right?
Thanks,
Joe

Great video!! Gonna check some of the others when I have a bit more time!
Wondering though, what's the grade along the line?
Around the bridge looks like a fairly stiff grade. Not sure what % it would be.
Would love to travel and ride many of these lines!! Gotta win the lottery first though, I guess.
