Looks like a 4 panel Pratt through truss to me. I can't help but wonder if it has been shortened, or otherwise modified.

Very old and very unusual. I would want to see some detail shots before I deeming it a simple Warren. Could be something more unusual.

This is a great find. Nevada has very few historic bridges, but this would be an important bridge even in a truss rich state. This one may even be wrought iron.
