King Hill Aqueduct

As I drove past I first though "That's a strange deck - and a rather light trestle - for a railroad." I dropped a waypoint and looked into it later and from satellite it's obvious it carries water!

I didn't have time to stop, and no time to get my camera out - so sorry that I don't have any photos.

But here is a streetview link.
