Northern Indiana bridge lover, especially those gorgeous old iron ones out in the country.

I grew up near here. I probably shouldn't admit this, but back when I was a teenager in the 80's, we would walk out onto this one and use the wide sides of the piers to climb under the tracks. We would hang out under there for hours, watching the cars go by on the other bridge beside it (and making poor choices LOL). It made me so happy to see this bridge saved, as I have always found it beautiful.
Thank you, Scott! This is my favorite bridge...
Found this bridge yesterday totally by chance. So glad to see they kept this lovely bridge when they built the new one beside it. Took some photos, which I will add soon!
Wow, that is the definition of fugly.... What a waste.
Wow, I have never seen this one! Looks very cool. Will have to check it out next time I go to Chain O Lakes!
Those are great photos, Scott! I remember the concrete still being there when I was younger, but have never seen photos of the actual bridge.
Wow, I live really close to here, going to have to do some research! Thanks for the pix, it looks really neat!
Great photo, Scott! Thanks for sharing. It was such a pretty little bridge in such a scenic location...
Thank you for adding this cute little bridge. I have more photos I will add soon.
How does one add a bridge to the site? I found a lovely old bridge on South Dixie Drive in North Webster (Kosciusko County) Indiana. It is just around the corner from the listed IN13 Tippecanoe River Bridge, and is over the north fork that can be seen on the map posted on that bridge page. I know nothing of its history, but did get some photos today.
This bridge just had work done on it this year. I did not get any photos of it while I was in the area today, but will at another time.
Found and added a really good old photo from 2014 from this (south/eastbound/girder) side of these really cool set of railroad bridges. Wish they were still there... use to purposely drive out in the country just to look at these.

I got some photos of this yesterday. It seems strangely out of place there, but is very cool with the obvious 2 sets of tracks. I will post the pictures here soon.
I got to run across this bridge today in the event I did there at Chain O Lakes. I got some photos, which I will post soon. It is a unique bridge, very interesting. I looked and did not see any plaque or any notation. I also found out the regulars there refer to this as "The Troll Bridge"...
