Rameswaram to Chennai Boat mail with 'Utkrisht' rake.
Opened in 1914, this 2.065 kilometers long railway bridge connects the town of Mandapam in mainland India with Pamban island & Rameswaram. It is India's first sea bridge. As seen in this image,it has a double-leaf rocker section midway, which can be raised to let ships and barges pass through. Until 1988, the Pamban bridge was the only surface transport that connected Tamil Nadu's island of Rameswaram to the mainland, when a parallel road bridge was constructed. It is always an amazing experience to travel about 2 kms. in a train through the sea on this bridge which is just about 12 meters above sea level.
