Pony truss lower chord

The south-west end of the pony truss, showing the lower chord eye bars are not under tension. Likely this is because the load is being carried by the bents. I suspect these center bents were added long after the bridge was built.

Diagonal mid-joint, ambient light

Wedges at the cross joint of the diagonals. The counter (on the right) is two pieces, one above and one below. The tendon joint appears to restrain lateral movement. The wedge appears to be to pre-tension the counter. The counter does not have a shoulder on the post, so I suspect it carries little compression load. Because of the wedges and no pin, it cannot be carrying any tension load.
