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...

Posted April 8, 2017

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

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.

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.

Posted March 1, 2017

I've seen bridges figuratively stir the pot on this site, but based on the plaque, this one LITERALLY stirred the pot

Posted March 1, 2017

No problem, Dana.

I'll add the Pennsy's bridge over the Reading later.

If you're ever down that way, there appears to be an arch on the old PRR line over the river at that spot, as well as two more arches on a wye at Port Carbon.

According to https://books.google.com/books?id=G2oTA3NMxwEC&q=atkins+brot...

This is the right area, but the bridge was located up the branch to the right, and based on maps from historicearials, it was road, not rail.
