Düsseldorf-Reisholz Rhine Powerline Crossing

The electricity pylon of the Rhine powerline crossing Düsseldorf-Reisholz is one of the few lattice towers in the world under whose legs a normal gauge railway runs. It is the railway connection of Holthausen substation, where the powerline it carries ends.

In earlier days it was also used by a coal-fired power station nearby, but this does not exist any more. The pylon was built in 1917 and belongs to the oldest of its kind in Germany.
