Coosa River Railroad Bridge
Posted August 9, 2013, by Zachary S

The Crescent route of Amtrak crosses this bridge and many others along its route from New Orleans to New York. I'm going to find some information about some particularly impressive bridges that area along this route that I went over on my trip from Birmingham to Baltimore.
