Bluestone River Bridge
Posted February 17, 2015, by Robert Elder (robertelder1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

There is a lot going on here bridgewise. (Okay, I don't think that bridgewise is a word, but I digress). Two railroads cross the Bluestone River in this vicinity. This small road crosses the Bluestone River directly under the highest railroad bridge. It then passes under the lower railroad before the lower railroad crosses the Bluestone River. Is everybody confused yet?

To make matters even worse, the NBI had this bridge located off the west coast of Panama.
