This bridge has a rare detail where it has riveted connections, yet a pin and u-bolt hanger hold the floorbeam in place. Usually u-bolt hangers only show up on pin-connected trusses.

Dave: Thanks for adding these photos from Ammodramus... please keep doing so! I added some of his photos a while back but I am too busy to finish the job. Ammodramus was very supportive of having his photos appearing on BridgeHunter. He has great photos of bridges that do not have photos and/or pages on BridgeHunter yet. If you poke through wiki commons you should find a lot of bridges from him.

I don't know where they got it, but it's the real thing, versus a Mail-Order Bridge.

Kudos to the Waterpark for the special effort to re-purpose this bridge!
