Some awfully cool bridges in this collection.
To the best of my knowledge the Saly Lake RR (UPRR) never crossed the river here, their Right-of-way went up the east bank of the LA River and a branch toward Pasadena that turned north near the old courthouse and jail - there's still rail in the streets nearby. The Santa Fe RR 2nd district crosed here but not on the same alignment as the Gold Line bridge (which is a "sexy" piece of concrete work in my opinion when viewed from the west bank of the river).
As a side note part of the old Santa Fe bridge is now in Soledad Canyon near the campgrounds (see the old movie "Duel" ...) and is used by Metrolink on a line relocation from the former Southern Pacific line (they straightened it out a bit).
