Oh yes, there is another smaller truss bridge crossing Shamoking Creek again after this one, it's off of Snydertown Rd towards Elysburg coordinates 40.876506, -76.609412

I last saw this bridge back in 1997 and there was a Conrail stencil with a date for the last time it was painted I believe. Recall it was on the side near Snydertown road face the creek. Is it still there or did time wear it away??
