Description 

This is the bridge that carries the CSX Railroad tracks over Gowans Road in Angola New York. This bridge is a short distance from the CSX Railroad bridge over Big Sister Creek, site of the legendary “Angola Horror” (a train wreck that killed many people in 1867).

This bridge is also known by locals as “The Pigman Road Bridge”. Local legends tell of a deformed man that looks like a pig who haunts this spot.
