We're in the village of Waldele, watching a train pass through the gorge of the Inn between Imst and Roppen. This single set of tracks on the main east-west line from Innsbruck to Zurich represents a critical bottleneck to rail traffic. There are two tracks on much of the rest of this busy rail line, but the single track through the gorge here means that timing is critical: this east-bound train will have to clear the gorge in a short interval and reach double trackage in order for a train going west to pass through the gorge in a few minutes.
