Reportedly the main span was trucked out in one piece on Thursday. Sounds like this one may find a new home.

Which begs the question, why remove it now? Seems like it would be more cost effective to wait until scrap is higher. Iím also curious if itís the railroad or a private individual selling it.

They're asking more than what the scrap metal value even is. Must be hoping to find someone in desperate need of a plate girder.
