|The Chapper (also called Chopa) Rift was a prime bridge-building feat on the Sindh Peshin Railway in the 1880s. The pillars supporting the bridge were as flimsy as they look, and often were washed away by floods. Construction and repair of the bridge and pillars cost many men their lives over the next half-century. The bridge was abandoned in the 1940s.
This image from the bottom of the rift is among the most popular of Balochistan in the 19th century; the links below show the same shot by the photographer Fred Bremner, and the American William Henry Jackson who caught a train moving over the bridge in 1895.
