About Me 

I love to travel. Love living in the Midwest. I love planning the bridgehunts, finding these places, & meeting the people who live there.

Equipment I use for photos: Nikon L310, Sony DSC-H300, & Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Life is an adventure

Drove by last night and discovered the bridge has been replaced by a concrete bridge.

I went on Sunday figuring it would be quieter in town. I have observed many times that there can be a late afternoon lull in RR traffic on Sundays & Fridays. (as I also photograph trains) I counted on that lull. I started in Montour at 2:09, I followed the weather & counted on the sun being out by the time I was at the bridge which worked out. I arrived back in town just at sunset. A train came at 2:43 when I was half way there & then at 4:58 as I arrived back. I planned very carefully for this one.

Basically I hiked all the way to it & the other bridges along that track, then back to Montour. I picked a time when I knew RR traffic would be lighter to make it much safer. I had tried to get to it 2 other times.

While this bridge is barely accessible due to the low maintenance road, tracks on the ground and the condition of the bridge indicates it is still in use

The picture titled 2nd Ave Overpass could not have been taken in 1975. The truck on the right is a Ford F-Series ca. 1987-1997. Also the car on the left is a version of the Chevy Cavalier ca. 1988-1994, with what looks like a 19891998 Isuzu Rodeo behind it.
