About Me 

My Fascination With bridges Started Relatively Not to long ago. Though I always thought bridges were interesting my interest grew on started Memorial Day 2017. When my family drove Down Old Us 30 from Pendleton back home and stopped a the Perry Arch Bridge it's design compelled to appreciate Bridges More and read about Its, Builder Conde McCullough. Though I have always ben into history Witch is unusual for a 14 year old boy like me. This one I had really never studied this important aspect before. Now Bridges along with transportation and local related historical subjects are my main focus(though I will read about any history).

Thank you

Posted April 13, 2018

Okay I have never seen a swing bridge with that design are there any other swing bridges with that design on the site?

Posted April 3, 2018

Truss bridges can be moved to a site easier than parts for a UCEB Witch makes them more practical than UCEBs And also Truss bridges are much more attractive

Posted April 1, 2018

Yes that thought did not even cross my mind. By the way good job on the bridge.

Posted March 20, 2018

I made a mistake it was built in late 1889 and burned in

early 1890 but still less than a year. I am still trying to find the cause of the fire.

Posted March 6, 2018

I think the engine and the majority of the cars were of the bridge I heard the river is like a wind tunnel so the train must of blew over I would not know for sure because I live in oregon but I have Ben reading about the accident.

Posted March 5, 2018

I think it is probably this bridge.

Posted March 5, 2018

And it is not just this bridge I am speaking for every neglected historic bridges no matter what design though some can not be saved I am glad to see people try to rehabilitate bridges in derelict condition.

Posted March 5, 2018

It is so sad to see bridges like this so many years of neglect and forgotten ever since the new highway was put in the 1960s.

Posted February 12, 2018

This is not a duplicate because the photo is looking south while the Riverdale bridge is north of here and the Northern Pacific swing bridge is of to the right of here. When I first saw the photo I had to double check but the determining factor is the NP swing bridge near by I understand your error.

Posted January 17, 2018

Thank You For the Link.

Posted January 13, 2018

Thank you for the comment I am glad to hare that your are not the only one that gives advice.

Posted January 13, 2018

Thank you Luke for all the tips you have given me I appreciate it.

Posted January 12, 2018

Alright thank you for the advice Luke I appreciate your comment about keeping up the good work i did that because the bridges were built on the same piers but one replaced another so they are two separate bridges.

Posted January 12, 2018

Wow his bridges are amazing I am now looking forward to Spain!
