Fun drive off the beaten path, south of Stewartsville, Missouri, down an old farm road. Neat little piece of history.

NBI even has it listed as a through, but considering how many mistakes they make...that means nothing.

The 60ft length make a through truss highly unlikely however.

It appears to me that it is actually the hip vertical that is visible in the aerial view--the image was taken at a slight angle. Also, the shadow from the truss shows member angles that are indicative of a pony. The "smudge" in the image may be a bare overhanging tree branch or something; it is hard to tell.

Probably needs a field check. Google shows what looks like a south portal to a through truss, not a pony.
