ATSF - Salt Fork Arkansas River Bridge

This bridge was demolished sometime after 1995. I took a best guess on type based on aerial imagery. I don't know if this rail line was spun off before it's demise, or perhaps it even made it into the BNSF era before it was abandoned. Any Oklahoma rail buffs, feel free to add/correct any info.
