John, photo 16 was published in Volume 35 of the trade journal Railway Age prior to modern copyright laws, and as such is in the Public Domain.

While not a *current* picture, it is legal to reuse.

The same "#adventure" internet culture that led to the decking being removed (And the possibility of the whole bridge being removed) touted IPAs as "REEL MANZ BEER", because apparently rotting yeast water is somehow tied to their masculinity.

Posted November 12, 2017

I wish I could say this was shocking news, but having witnessed firsthand the "intellectual fortitude" of some members of the "adventure culture" that made this bridge famous on instagram and tumblr, I'm surprised it hasn't been demolished already due to some IPA-swilling simpleton's family suing the forestry company that owns it for "wrongful death".

Posted November 8, 2017

I found a Railway Age article, and while it doesn't have pictures of the actual completed bridges, it has info.

Gimme a few minutes and I'll have it screencapped and uploaded.

Actually, all that needs to happen is that Brian's msi-added Panaramio imports need to be deleted from this entry and Jack's proper images made the default.

Two bridges at two different GPS coords.

Posted November 5, 2017

I know John has deciphered these before, so it's not so much of a mystery but more of a "wait for John."

Nice find, Erica! IIRC that plaque was used by the Wrought Iron Bridge Co. of Canton.

Robert, the design was unique to King's railroad trusses from what John and I have found, and several can be found in Missouri, including: https://bridgehunter.com/mo/pulaski/piney-army/

Or we can make it known that he doesn't need to comment on every single movable bridge entry, implying they need replacement because they aren't opened
