That's a good question CV. If it was erected by the railroad you would expect to just see a timber stringer... and that looks more like a conventional metal pony truss. But of course looks can be deceiving.

So, based on Luke's newspaper find about the replacement, was this a wooden pony or did the writer just base the description on a wooden deck?
