L&N - Branch of Little Trammel Creek Bridge

What a neat find James! This is my favorite kind of bridgehunting...that and "twofers" (finding a bridge you didn't expect next to another).

Found this bridge completely by accident. Located about 20 yards from current alignment of Old US 31 E. Bridge has to be very old, thought it was an older surviving bridge of US 31, but is an old railroad bridge.
