I'm a hoping that maybe it was moved there.

That name plate needs a "Lily Von" in from of Stupp

I am certainly no expert on RR items, so Please anyone, any info. This looks to me like the same line that runs from Johnstown Bridge to, perhaps, the abandoned White River trestle East of Newberry. Of course I may be full of crapola. What say you?

Posted December 8, 2018

Yes...these are hideous pix and if I can get permission to visit this bridge I will get better ones. And I promise to destroy these turds. Anyway, can't tell if it as actual bowstring or fabricated, like the bridge in East Park in Washington. Graber Post Building, who made the ped bridge in Washington are only a few miles away... BTW, as you can tell, my attempt at blowing up my photos are deplorable.

Ha! You never know what you'll find around bridges! I was semi-accosted under US31 Wabash bridge in Miami Co by a homeless (probably) old lady. Only thing she didn't say was "Get Outta My House!!" I may be a little twisted, but was sad & hilarious

Posted December 2, 2018

Lotsa water here today. Bridge is fine.

Posted December 2, 2018

Visited the bridge today. Looks like repair is moving along quickly. Looks like there were a few I-beam replacements.

Posted December 2, 2018

This isn't a historic bridge. Just sayin.

Posted November 29, 2018

I assume you are looking at Road-Canaseraga Creek Bridge. Yes indeed!! And even a little further looks like an abutment

Great! Just what Putnam Co needs...a bunch of crows with hernias!

Crow's Bridge
Posted November 25, 2018

Well, I guess we can't murder them for removing it lol. On a serious note, the bridge was in crappy shape and it is a heavily traveled road. Brown County State Park is looking for more bridges. I don't know if they checked on it.

Melissa! Go for it! I wouldn't mind in anyway what so ever! In fact, go back to Sullivan County and see if Kelley Bridge is gone or I'm just blind! The more viewpoints the better in my opinion!

Posted November 11, 2018

Damn! Needing to watch NOFLD again. "They're dead...They're all messed up"...

Posted November 11, 2018

Btw, I did not swipe it.
