TXPF- Concho River Bridge
Posted July 22, 2018, by Michael Horne (mdhorne [at] suddenlink [dot] net)

This was not a railroad bridge. The only railroad into Paint Rock TX was a line from Miles TX which crossed the river some distance west of here. The old pilings for the RR crossing are at (Google Map) coordinates 31.517182, -99.944371. The bridge supports shown in the article are likely from the old US 83 highway bridge; both it and the railroad crossing were washed out in a major flood in 1936.
