That is a Strauss heel trunnion railroad bascule bridge of a Lower Buffalo River Drawbridge that's not a Scherzer type rolling lift bascule bridge.

Is there some pictures somewhere of this second railroad Scherzer rolling lift bridge of the upper Buffalo River? There's a Nickel Plate Scherzer type in the raised position abandoned next to the CP Buffalo Creek Strauss Heel Trunnion Bascule Bridge
