This typically Swiss stone-arched viaduct is located in the northeast of the country. Standard gauge, single track, 10 stone arches, completed and opened in 1910, electrified in 1931. Mainly used by SOB long distance trains on the route St. Gallen - Lucerne and some local stopping trains.

Not as famous as some of the other viaducts in the country, but just as scenic and therefore a bit of a "best kept secret" that is nice to share here. Officially named the Glatt Valley Viaduct, as it spans the namesake River Glatt.
