CNW Galena River Bridge
Posted December 15, 2012, by John Marvig (johnmarvig [at] chaska [dot] net)

Looks like an late 1880's/early 1890's lassig B&I works bridge.

Compare to the mid 1890's version of their Quadrangular Lattice Through Truss built for C&NW (who also owned this line in Lafayette County)
