This classic Baltimore truss railroad bridge sits next to a modern plate girder railroad bridge. The two bridges are quite a contrast, with the historic bridge having far more beauty! The approach spans to this bridge appear to have been replaced around the same time the new bridge was built, as both bridges shared the same type of approach system.
The 1930 construction date for this bridge is no coincidence, since this is when the Elm Fork Trinity River was diverted to this channel from the old channel east of here.
Lengths given are estimates.
