Luke,

Whichever is easier. I reworked and moved the relevant post. Hopefully someone will address the images.

On the contrary, Art, it would be more arduous to undo all the "related bridge" linking and re-doing all the data entry I've done than for Doug to move the images that would need need to be moved from the duplicate entry.

Luke,

Thanks!

Might I suggest reversing it and making your listing for the original Howe trusses and this one the replacement Phoenix Pratt trusses. Less stuff will need to be moved that way. The pics and comments here relate to the Phoenix Pratt trusses.

Art, I'm merging the info into my entry.

Already added and build date is wrong. These spans are from the 1880s. Also, this may be the source for http://bridgehunter.com/ca/sonoma/20C0005/

http://bridgehunter.com/ca/sonoma/bh43377/

http://bridgehunter.com/ca/mendocino/10C0046/

So, its possible they were moved and still exist.

Regards,

Art S.

PS. If merged, please move my info/data to the other listing.
