Seems to me the steel stringers are acting more like piers or bents. I have zero engineering experience, BTW

Nathan,

I have learn my lesson. Before I ask a question here, my first stop will be historicbridges.org your work there is outstanding, thank you for taking the time to answer, yet again.

My guess is this bridge is much younger than the 30's. Would it be common to have a completely welded bridge in the 30's?

Royce

Posted January 4, 2018

George,

It is my understanding Bethlehem Steel built the railroad in order to spur competition and receive better prices from the Reading and the Lehigh Valley RRs. And yes it was snowing so I got what photos I could get as I will probably not be back in the area. Still the bridge is something I have not seen before (with the locking mechanisms and suspended span).

Royce

Hi John,

The reason I ask is if you look at pics, 5,6,7,8,14,15 20,21 they show the span crossing the roadway is locked between two spans that over hang the piers. Can see in it in the wide field photos as well if you enlarge. I have not seen these locking devices or a span hung between two other spans before in deck girders. Thought it was peculiar. Oh well, thank you

Ty Luke, that was my first impression but the fact that all the outside diagonals go one way and all the inside diagonals go the opposite way seemed strange to me

Thank You. I am obviously outclassed in the nominations. This was one of my favorites in Lehigh County.

George,

The other bridge is http://bridgehunter.com/pa/cumberland/bh79677/ It is obviously older. Looks like it might originally have been on different abutments (late 1800's or early 1900's) and lower complete guess work. Second reincarnation appears to have been on early 1900's abutments in current position but maybe with a double truss. Current configuration looks like they added piers raised it and used plate girders. All guess work though.

Royce

Doubtful this bridge was built in the '30s given the spans and piers.

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.
