The lift span was the successor bridge to the one this entry is for.

You're probably thinking of the 1882 Forth railroad cantilever.

The Forth Road Bridge is a far newer (1964) suspension bridge.

Zoomed in it shows that it is a Berlin plaque.

Posted April 19, 2017

The geological formation is referred to as Pikes Peak.

Sadly, this bridge is failing as we speak: http://www.charlescitypress.com/site/uncategorized/2017/04/1...

Also this bridge shows up in Bing aerial imagery, so there's also that.

Posted March 14, 2017

1924 per our own Jason Smith's website: http://thebridgehunter.areavoices.com/2014/04/26/mystery-bri...

Drop a streetview pin on the bridge over Willow Creek just south of here, rotate the view to the west.

Posted March 8, 2017

There's also a two-span concrete arch to the south.

Posted March 6, 2017

According to maps from historicaerials.com, this line (The New York Central's Castleton Cutoff, per the map.) and what is now the CSX line merge/split at Stuyvesant.

Posted March 6, 2017

Based on further research, there was a railroad swing bridge here belonging to the Texas & Pacific.

What threw me off is the use of multiple circular piers. Normally, only one is used on the swing span.

Sadly, the blogspot page this images comes from/the ones that show any info are invite-only.

Posted March 4, 2017

I think those may be dolphins https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dolphin_(structure), not piers.

Posted March 4, 2017

Message via John: Bridge was relocated from Oklahoma per landowner.

Posted March 4, 2017

Dana, this bridge and the one pictured on the "older bridge" page are the same bridge.
