Description 

Derelict pony truss sitting alongside PA-208 at a truck services center. Based on aerial imagery, it appears to have arrived around 2010 and is still there as of 2018 (albeit rotated). No idea as to its origin - most of the pony trusses documented as lost in Venango and Butler Counties were replaced in the 1990s.
