Description 

A slab-bridge that carries several tracks to a warehouse for goods-shipping. It leads to the inside of the building where the cars were loaded with goods and then dragged out to an adjacent rail where the next car is loaded. The slab bridged was built one piece at a time with the oldest piece still remaining even after the other four parts were completed.
