This railway bridge is an early rivet-connected truss bridge with an uncommon truss configuration. It has an attractive arched portal bracing and stone substructure.
This bridge has some alterations including a lot of bolted steel plates on it, reinforcing the bottom and top chords and the end posts. It is on an incredibly lightly used rail line, one train once a week, with one tank car. The line along with the bridge has a slow order of 10mph.
One of the deck stringers of this bridge had very faded words on it which appear to read Dominion Bridge Co. It seems remarkable that a painted name would survive for so long, but it makes sense that the builder would be Dominion because further up on the rail line there is a deck truss built by them as well.
