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.

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.

Posted July 17, 2017

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

This Tee beam is interesting because of the Brick that is layed into the side of the bridge. Not sure if its decoration or if it actually helps support the structure.

High Bridge (Kentucky)
Posted April 25, 2017

Added a new street view, someone was crazy enough to get up on the deck and make a panoramic and its on Google. You really get an idea of how tall this bridge really is.

Posted April 25, 2017

Looks like its about to get cleaned up and used again for a trail finally.

Possible Covered Bridge
Posted April 25, 2017

So while just looking around Indiana, I noticed this Covered Bridge. It could be just a stringer, but it seems almost abandoned and could be an old alignment of Coffee Road. Just wanted to see what everyone else thought before I added the bridge.

Posted April 21, 2017

Tree removal on the north side of the bridge has started.

Posted April 11, 2017

I followed the line several directions and added several tunnels and bridges. Some of them were already and active, and it looks like the tracks are still active as they branch off to a major coal plant.

Posted April 11, 2017

Based on Google Imagery the bridge has been removed, but I figured I would go ahead and add it.

Posted April 9, 2017

corrected it, thanks for pointing it out.

Posted March 30, 2017

A gentlemen named Kevin Decker contacted me and He bought the land this bridge is on and provided me with the photos. He was able to verify that the bridge existed on his 70 plus acres because of this website.
