Description 

Not sure if this bridge still stands; the coal fired power plant it served was imploded Friday, June 20, 2014. This bridge was apparently for delivery of coal by rail. Update, bridge still remains. RR has obviously not been used for many years, tracks are in disarray and no longer connected. It looks as if the bridge was used mostly for truck delivery access.
