Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's it!

The kilometre reading was one dead giveaway, if someone knows to check the Wiki page. But you could have had it easier. The river is clearly a major river (major for Germany) -- and the entire line from Hannover to Würzburg crosses only two, the Main (twice) and the final, wider part of the Fulda (again twice). (The other line of similar age, Mannheim-Stuttgart, crosses none.) Of the four bridges, only the Maintalbrücke Gemünden fits the geography.

For some reason I had thought that the river wasn't wide enough to be the Main.  This is why I had mentioned Fulda - Kassel before, thinking it was a Fulda River crossing instead...and then I noticed the markers and figured it out.
