Spreewitz Radio Tower

A radio tower with something unusual between its legs 

What is unusual about Spreewitz Radio Tower is not the tower itself but what happens between its legs.

Originally built as floodlight tower to illuminate the Spreewitz Railway Station at night, the tower is a large free-standing lattice tower with a triangular cross section. Due to the lack of space in the railway station the tower had to be built with a train running between its legs. 

It is no longer used as a floodlight, and now serves to hold up cell phone antennas.
