My mistake, I confused this one with the other bridge up near West 16th Street. This one is the I&V bridge next to Kentucky Avenue. This spur will most likely be ripped up as the sole remaining customer on the line closed and the building was razed.
Topo from 1948 says PRR.
Bridge is NOT former PRR, but the old IU Belt railway.
Yeah....It looks like 1880's-1890 wrought iron with it's lacing and portal bracing. Neat bridge that I hadn't seen.
Thats a very lightweight thru-truss for railroad use. I'll bet that is 19th century for sure.
