Combs Railroad Bridge
Posted November 20, 2012, by Nathan Holth

Bedstead trusses must have end posts that extend below the bottom chord which this bridge does not. The unusual details you can definitely see on this bridge at the pier point is apparently due to the skew. Hard to see exactly what is going on from just a street view.

Question on this bridge, if you look at the street view, the span on the left when it gets to the center pier seems to be bedstead on the side closest to the camera while the other side had a normal skewed look.....thoughts on this.
