    That's not too far from where I live. I think that a picture of this bridge appeared in an issue of Model Railroader a year or two ago (it was a bridge on or near that line, at any rate). I dug through my collection, but couldn't find it...must've thrown it away...:(

    Anyway, the bridge is an interesting mix of different styles: wooden trestle, plate girder, trusses, etc. The little blurb about it in MR highlighted this fact...
