Found the supports for this one in it's pinned location. Looks long-gone.

This one shifts between two locations in the NBI. It was probably at the location where I moved the pin. It disappears from the NBI in 2015 after showing as closed for a few years.

I will try to see if I can sort this out. Even just a few years ago, Marshall County had a massive number of pony trusses, so we may have a process of elimination.

There was one set of NBI data from the 90s that gave me a pin located in central Norway.

Sometimes the pins migrate. I have had to move pins a mile or two to the appropriate bridge. While editing a West Virginia bridge entry a couple years ago, I had to retrieve the pin from China!

This is the intersection of 2 dirt roads. No bridge or creek within 100 yard radius.
