Carramassco Gorge.

The line begins to climb and crosses the Carramassco Gorge on the curved Akvalando viaduct. This occupies the 180 degree 'blob' at the end of the central peninsula. The original intention was to make a scaled down version of the famous Landwasser viaduct on the Rhaetian railway but space restrictions have greatly reduced this ambition. This area remains in its bare bones state awaiting development.
  
  
An early photo shows the 2-6-6-0 tank crossing the viaduct with a passenger train.
  
  
This view from the outside of the curve shows how the port scene below restricts options at the bottom left.
  
  
A view from the inside of the curve at rail level shows the position of the road and the river at the bottom left.
