Is wood railing common/interesting enough for a category? I often see it on wood stringer humpback railroad overpasses and some of the park bridges out west.

I'm not sure who put the concrete balustrade category in there, as Photo #2 plainly shows wood rot where the horizontal rail beams connect to the post, and Photo #1 shows wood grain texture and heavy moss, which normally doesn't grow to this extent on concrete. My vote is wood for sure.
