Some of the comments on the article were equally irksome.

Thanks for the aerial imagery link, I'll add those to the topo maps I've been using.

Hmm. Well the linked article on metal theft is rather infuriating... major problem for metal bridges in the central part of the state. People have no respect for heritage.

There are historical aerials and maps avaliable at http://alabamamaps.ua.edu/aerials/ if that helps.

Pretty much, except it was more trying to find some more info on the tpg that supposedly went over the L&N on/near Red Mountain.

I'm guessing, discovered while searching for info on the abandoned railroad plate girders?
