NECR - Sawmill River Bridge
Posted August 13, 2017, by Richard Nathhorst (Rpnathhorst [at] leverettnet [dot] net)

Does anyone know the name of the builder of the NECR / Central Vermont RR bridge over the Sawmill River in Leverett or if plans of this and other Warren Truss Deck Rail Road bridges built in Franklin County, Massachusetts in the first decades of the 20th century exist? These bridges exist on the CV RR and the Boston and Maine (now Panamerican RR) Fitchburg division.

These bridges seem to have all been built in the same era and are very similar design.
