IANR - Beaver Creek Bridge
The area around the bridge is a gigantic swamp, so I had to walk in a big detour to the south to be able to reach the tracks.

The 1973 RI track chart has incomplete and incorrect information for this bridge. It only lists a 127ft truss span, completely omitting the approaches. The length is also way off, as the actual span length is 175ft.
