Interesting support piers under that Putnam bridge.
The Indiana Rail Road’s SAHW-08 crosses Tulip Trestle also known as the Greene County Viaduct located in Bloomfield, IN.
I visited the Livermore Falls lenticular truss bridge. Quite a history and still popular with "jumpers".
Longest bridge owned by a tourist RR east of the Mississippi River. Grand Rapids, OH over the Maumee River. 901', six span. built in 1916.
So it's still in use?
Do they have any power other than motor cars?
At the north end of the Rathole once stood this.
Wow. That is a monster of a bridge.
Love those old postcards!
