Leslie,

If you have an account, you can go in anytime and edit the bridge. If you're signed in, there should be a yellow button on the individual bridge's page that says "edit bridge". You can go in there and change the bridge type.

I meant to put timber string but I accidentally put steel stringer and didn't check the page before I published it.

I notice that the descriptions listed this as a "Steel Stringer" bridge. It was actually a wooden trestle. It replaced the original red bridge when the SVRwy laid heavier rails in order to run larger locomotives, such as their Mikados and the former Uintah mallets.
