Geoff's picture is not of the Broadway bridge. It's of the BVT's railroad only bridge https://bridgehunter.com/id/canyon/bvr-boise-river/

Not sure whose reference is right, but the new picture is of a multi span Whipple with Phoenix Columns. The listing is for a Pennsylvania through truss. Either way, great bridge in the picture!
