Working on your reading skills will greatly improve your reading comprehension. Using your name instead of hiding will greatly improve your chances of becoming a man. Enough said on the subject.

Bridge naming
Posted November 26, 2017

Please allow me this opportunity to set straight the point I am making about bridge names. This is not an exercise of my ego. Personally I do not care what the name of any bridge is or the process that people go through to name a bridge, for me basically any name is acceptable. "Commonly used name" is a vague term at best. If this were truly about my ego I would have spoken out years ago as many many of the pages I put up had their names changed, the vast majority by Luke and in my mind the vast majority for very trivial reasons. The most common of which seem to be Lukes preference for pages to have the railroads abbreviated and hyphenated vs spelling out the railroads name. In my mind this site is about information and education and for me there is no doubt the general public is more likely to use the actual railroads name, if they are aware at all of the railroad, using call marks takes a special knowledge that the general public does not posses. The express point I am making is changing the page names for trivial reasons or changes that are of no substantive value do not actually create a better page. As has been pointed out many times, all names of any particular bridge can be accomplished through the AKA portion of he page.

I, like many people that post to this site, invest substantial money, time, and energy, traveling, photographing, organizing, and cataloging photos. To better deal with the many inquiries I get on photos I catalog them according to the page name (is this your problem ? No) but this is the reason I bring up these trivial changes, it not only makes it difficult for me and others who catalog this way to address people inquiring about bridges and photos but as mentioned above provides no real value to the page.

All I was asking and I did not think it was that "mountain of a molehill" of a deal, was not to change the pages names, mine or others, without substantial reason to, simply add to the AKA portion.

So using Luke's reasoning that a name in media serves as a reason to change a bridges name, I changed the names of two pages he created. The first I changed using the article from which the photo he used was taken ( http://culturedcarboncounty.blogspot.com/2014/01/). In this article the historian cites the bridge name as Beaver run Trestle several times in the well articulated and researched historical article, some short time later the page name has been changed back to Carbon County Electric - Beaver Run Trestle. The second name change I made was using the Historical account it appears Luke used for information on the page he created, another well documented article. I changed NH - Warehouse Point Bridge (Old) to Warehouse Point Bridge as quoted by the article, some short time later it is back with the abbreviated, hyphenated name. Now my point here is the changes I made simply followed Lukes explanation for changing page names but it appears it only applies to others, so if we are dealing with ego it certainly is not mine, once again I do not care what the names of bridge are I just do not think changing them for trivial reasons is justified.

In closing I want to address two points with Luke. First, if you believe naming a bridge for the feature it bridges followed by what bridges it is illogical, you simply do not understand logic. As well, there are hundreds of examples of this on this site alone. Second, If you believe a personal noun can be grammatically incorrect you do not understand grammar or personal Nouns.

Bridge comment
Posted November 25, 2017

Well that seems to support Royce and Bobette, that the James River Bridge is a Valid name, as the listing is for "commonly used name" and James River Bridge fits that as well as the once official name. As for other citing in Richmond's media, Old Lee Bridge and Robert E Lee Bridge are much more common. In the end I guess the point is the change was rather nit picky and added nothing to the page as it could have just as easily been added to other names as many "Official" names often are because there is a more commonly used name.

Bridge comment

"The city acquired the original bridge from Richmond Bridge Corp in 1933, and it was named the James River Bridge but was later renamed for the Confederate general"-https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_E._Lee_Memorial_Bridge

AKA Lee Bridge, Old Lee Bridge, US 301 Bridge, Robert E Lee Bridge

Seems almost no one calls it the Robert E. Lee Memorial Bridge

Changing bridge names
Posted November 24, 2017

"Common name per local railfan/history buff" if he is a "rail fan" he probably does not qualify as a local as he has special knowledge. Local implies, to me at least, the average person living around the bridge.

Changing page names
Posted November 24, 2017

I am disheartened at the changing of names of pages I have created. There is a place for alt names on the page. I organize my files by the names I create on the pages which means every time someone changes the names I have to go through and change the names on my files and photos. Beyond that, I do not understand why someone thinks that "Chesapeake & Ohio Railway Second Street Bridge" needs to be changed because "Corrected name to infer that it was used by a road, not a railroad", Does the James river I-95 Bridge infer the James river is using the bridge? The names I use are consistent and simple, if there is not a common name it is the name of the item being bridged (Chesapeake & Ohio Railway) by what is bridging it (Second Street) or (James River, being bridged), by (I-95). Is this truly a system that is so misleading it requires immediate action to change it? I understand different people have different ideas on what the names of bridges should be, I believed this was the reason for the AKA section of a page, I am not understanding this correctly? Who do we need to run the page names by to have them approved?

Need help identifying the rail yard here. was just south of the current Richmond NS south Yard. Was still in existence in 1969.

Thanks Royce

Posted November 24, 2017

I am unsure. I added it because it bridged a couple of roads. Do you think I should remove it?

Royce

Posted November 23, 2017

I did not see a current RR either. NBI gives it as crossing a yard and since Main Street station and trainshed is half a block away, I assumed at some point there must have been a spur.

Posted November 8, 2017

TY for the answers. Deleted

Royce

Posted November 8, 2017

So, should I remove it or put it into a different category?

Also, does it not function as an arch? Is there a significant difference between being precast and poured on site, other than time and money?

Thanks, Royce

Dennis,

The truss was only in service for aprox 29 years. It was replaced in 1949 with a haunched girder, which is extant.
