Norfork Railroad Bridge
Posted March 3, 2007, by Fred Garcia (fandsgarcia [at] gmail [dot] com)

Visited this bridge at 4:00 pm on 2 March 2007. There are several good vantage points to get photos. Good straight-on view can be taken right from the RR crossing before getting on the gravel road that takes you under both bridges. Also took a nice photo from the same rock promontory that I used for the long shot of the Norfork vehicle bridge. RR bridge seems hefty and rusty.
