Description 

Built in 1930, at the beginning of the approach to the Little river Bridge a few hundred yards North. This line was originally completed in 1890, so this bridge was added later, or perhaps replaced an earlier version as a way to prevent erosion. On NC Gamelands so public access, but best to avoid deer hunting season to ensure good relations with hunters.

See a map of NC Railroads in 1890. This line is listed as "Lynchburg & Durham Railroad (comp. <1890)" http://www.carolana.com/NC/Transportation/railroads/nc_railr...
