A category for railroad bridges that have had the Lionel name painted on the structure.
Lionel is one of the world's most well-known toy train manufacturers.
Specifically, the fashion of the painting often resembles the style in which "LIONEL" was emblazoned on girder bridges for toy train sets (see here: http://www.lionel.com/products/ProductNavigator/_ProductImag...), which in turn is a reference to many railroads painting their names or logos on highway overpasses in the early- to mid-20th century.
