Description 

Very uniquely designed pony truss. Cover plate has been omitted on much of the upper chord and endposts, and instead uses lattice (double-lacing). Top chord also extends slightly past the endposts. Bottom chord has a polygonal element to it. Endposts and verticals also flared out to become wider at the bottom.
