Built 1909, from a Railway Age article of the same year.

From now on whenever I add a railroad bridge, I will just call it "bridge, railroad". I can let the railfans on here fight it out...

I now have an app that monitors this website, that notifies me whenever the term "CSX Railroad" is changed. It changes it back because it is the correct term, then emails me to let me know it is changed back. Saves me a lot of time. Thank goodness for technology!
