No, that is a working railway passing over the bridge, not a disused one.

Foul Green, near Commondale railway station, in the Scarborough district of North Yorkshire.

Looks like an interesting location with the old railway line there.

Well done! Yes, it is at Foul Green in Commondale. The intact bridge carries the Whitby to Middlesbrough line and the derilict bridge carried a branch line to the Commondale quarries and brickworks.

That was quick! A view overlooking Bergen from the mountain Floyen, near the top of the Fløibanen funicular railway.

Here's some more of the view (please excuse the rough join).
