Nice find. I've lived in North Georgia all my life and never knew it was there.

Posted June 16, 2014

As best I know, the story posted is accurate. If you look on Google Earth, the last house on the right, on the west side of the river, is where the gentleman we spoke to about it lives. He said it hadn't been there in many years, and from looking at the latest image from Google Earth, I would say that's true.

CSX Railroad vs. CSX Transportation
Posted April 17, 2012

So, after all these years of it going back and forth, we have came to a consensus that we are going to go with CSX Railroad right? I went initially with CSX Transportation due to the insistence of HH, but after Calvin's research, from now on I'll call it CSX Railroad. He's a very prominent TV news anchor in our area, and I'm confident with his connections, they wouldn't steer him wrong.

Well, like Tony, I don't think I'll be visiting it often, but I bet it'll get a lot of listings fast since there's so many of the dang things...lol

The location of this bridge in Montana?
Posted January 8, 2011

It looks to be the Sage Creek Trestle and tunnel from the pics on this site...scroll down around halfway http://www.trainweb.org/chris/rare20042.html

Posted January 7, 2011

Agreed...Sheldon, you did good on this one.

Posted January 7, 2011

Matthew, I tend to agree with you on this...maybe some of our other learned pontists will verify if we're right or wrong.

Posted January 1, 2011

J.P., I've posted several of this type myself. There used to be quite a few in the tri-state area, but slowly but surely, they're disappearing. Better we get them now than shoulda, woulda, coulda a few years from now.

Happy Holidays

Everyone have a Merry Christmas and a joyful New Year

Posted December 20, 2010

If you can, will you tell me exactly on the map where this bridge is or give me the coordinates to it. The area that's pinpointed is wrong I'm relatively sure. Thanks in advance.

Like Wayne, I haven't said anything about this so far but enough is enough. Posting fantasy bridges is going way too far. Something needs to be done now.
