That used to be Chir (Tschir) river entering Don river, now Tsimlyansk Reservoir (completed in 1952).
Sadly censor cut out Logovskiy bridge over Don river... We can still see approaches to the bridge.

32.49 Chir river bridge
34:00 Obliwskaja station
35:30 Berezowaja river bridge


45.39 Donskaya Tsaritsa river bridge

Only last 15 km or so had been electrificated...
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

There is already a lot of information available about Münsterwalde bridge on the Internet, you are most likely familiar with these as well, so I don't want to repeat what you already know.

Can you be more specific?

Eg.
Are you interested in a construction of original 1909 bridge? Or 1928/29 disassemble?
1944 reconstruction is already covered on this forum.

To my knowledge Münsterwalde bridge was not considered in Otto plan.

Thank you for your response to my question.
I have knowledge about the bridge Munsterwalde contained on the web.
I would like to deepen their knowledge of information generally available in the construction of the bridge in 1905 and its reconstruction in 1944.
It will be good if the information will be confirmed by documentation.

Initial information about construction of the first Münsterwalde bridge was published in 1909 edition of Zentralblatt der Bauverwaltung (8 pages of text and photos).
A year later Zeitschrift für Bauwesen published an extended version of the above article (17 pages of text and photos plus 4 sheets of construction drawings and 1 large photo).
Both articles are in German. Construction drawings are not readable in the size permitted on the Forum.
I uploaded one as an example. Is this something you are after?

This is very interesting.
It can certainly expand my range of information.
I will be grateful for sending larger size documents.
