Description 

I remember seeing this one several years ago when I was in Chillicothe. It is skewed and rather short, but still seems massive when you look up at it. Built for double track (although if I remember it was only carrying one at the time), and also crosses over a set of double tracks.

I believe the lower tracks might be Norfolk & Western but not positive. Not sure of the tracks the bridge is on and will need the railroad gurus to help out.

to clarify: the top tracks are CSX; the double tracks are Norfolk Southern.
