I've been doing this for a while now it seems. This is one of favorite hobbies, but anyways. I'm J.P. above you will find my photo blog link or where ever it lands on my bio page. Here is a link to my facebook if you would like to discuss stuff. Personally I'm from the Sunny Side of Louisville (southern Indiana), and I'm excited for the opening of the big 4 bridge across the Ohio.

This bridge appears to have been moved to steel stringer with truss decorations. But wanted to get second opinions.

Posted May 14, 2018

Not sure of any info on this bridge. Other then its right off the interstate and seems left to time.

Posted May 10, 2018

Good call Art, I was trying to tell but wasn't sure.

Posted May 9, 2018

Pretty sure this is a phoenix bridge company bowstring, its on a random driveway in PA. There is a link to a flickr photo.

I know the bridge isn't anything special, but how often are you going to find an abandoned bridge with a caboose on it?

Picture for the recent flooding we had down here. With it less then a mile upstream from the Ohio, it got really close to overrunning it. This was the crest though.

New Whipple???

So in Indianapolis I noticed over the canal what appears to be a modern whipple truss. Thoughts......And Go....

Btw I know Modern/Non Historic.

Road leading up to bridge removed. I wish they would just add parking lot and let the bridge stand.

Way too real
Posted August 24, 2017

Seen this while looking at a model train, I actually laughed out loud at this scene.

Posted July 19, 2017

This bridge has been extremely altered on the left side. Its also listed on shaard.

This what gives me hope, that we haven't found everything in Indiana Yet.
