I concur, and also removed the "Central Vermont" category as well, as the Central Vermont/NECR trackage enters White River junction south of this river and never operated over this bridge. The Montpelier and Barre trackage is what is now the Washington County 'Granite Division' and also never operated here.

This bridge was not a part of the Montpelier and Barre or the New England Central RR.

Between the when the B&M left the line and the Washington County too over the line was operated by the Canadian Pacific railway.
