I have to agree with you ian that this bridge is the rail bridge you mentioned,not the pony truss which is on thiss listing.

George,

I'd hazard a guess that it's this railroad bridge (https://goo.gl/NmSegj; http://bridgehunter.com/oh/wood/nyc---portage-river/), which is located further south along the same road.
