Description 

Warren through truss NS railroad bridge near Barney south of Cordova, AL, over Mulberry Fork. Long steel stringer approach span on west side and short span on east side. Satellite imagery shows a bridge here since at least the 1940s, with a three or four span through truss at this location until the 1980s or 1990s. Don't know if the truss span that remains is one of the originals though.
