Barrel Shot Looking North

The old bridge was replaced by this one in 2007. It's not just an UCEB, in fact, it has some rather classic design features, although the blocks are imitation.

Clark,

It appears to be similar to this bridge

It appears that it may have originally been a traditional pony truss designed for the CNW such as:

But later heavily altered with the original end posts removed.

Might this be a double intersection warren bedstead?

Found an image of this bridge:

Appears that it was a heavily modified recycled railroad truss.
