And they let people like this have a license to drive a potential 80,000 lb vehicle? I work at a lumber company that receives truck shipments daily and this is the state of the trucking industry these days. There people driving these things I wouldn't trust to mow my lawn let alone drive my truck.

Marvig, you son of a..... You beat me too it!! (kidding or course) Congrats!!

Not sure of the prospects for this bridge. New bridge being built beside it now (2016)

Posted August 28, 2016

Description is absolutely correct. There's short sections of earth embankment between the main B&O Potomac River as well as the Potomac St overpass. All 3 are separate structures when you're standing there.

Posted January 28, 2016

Don't get me wrong. If there's an interesting painting, drawing or art of some kind of a a particular bridge. By all means post it. THATS interesting. But 2,3,5,10 of each. If you look at the updates page anymore all you find is 1000's of one persons drawings. One or two of each is plenty.

Posted January 27, 2016

Enough already with the frigging drawings.

Posted December 6, 2015

Yikes! We drove across it when we took photos in June 2015. Didn't feel or sound unstable.

Posted September 12, 2015

Went through here in Sept 2015 and indeed all the spans are sitting in various places on the NW hillside all intact.

Posted September 11, 2015

Stamp on piers shows 1884. Bridge appears newer, any input from the experts?

Posted August 8, 2015

I know this area and am fairly certain this is bridge is not at this location.

Posted June 14, 2015

I really is 2 bridges. The aqueduct was the main bridge and the interurban line was added sitting on the same piers next to it. Zoom in on my pic 15 on the aqueduct page and you can more clearly see the 2 separately.

Posted May 4, 2015

That's correct. But we did see fresh tracks leading to this bridge.

Posted March 12, 2015

I don't think the picture is this bridge, nor is it refered to as the Clinton Rail Bridge. The Plum River isn't nearly big enough for a swing bridge here. Its probably only 100-150' wide. Plus Clinton is miles down river.

Posted October 26, 2014

Just listed it

Posted August 10, 2014

Heard news the bridge was to be reopened by now.
