I believe I added the date from a newspapers.com article mentioning the construction of a new bridge over the Neosho on the Emporia-Topeka line. Railroad bridge dates can be a pain to track down. It's a lot of basing it off of identical structures and when the railroads reconstructed the line.
I don't seem to have much success finding build dates on RR bridges other than plaques. How did you figure out the date for this one?
Beat me to this one Nick! I love your photos!!
119 years old? Gorgeous.
