WSOR/CNW - Mullet River Bridge

Photos 

West Elevation

This is an interesting pair of railroad bridges in Plymouth, Wisconsin. They are just south of the Mill Street pair of bridges (one was C&NW and one was Milwaukee Road) that were built on the same abutment. This pair of bridges was also built by the competing railroads, and also built on the same abutments. The abutments for these bridges demonstrates the difference in building philosophies between the two railroads.
