Description 

The old abandoned operators house and piers at one time was next to the railroad bridge which the bridge is still in heavy traffic for railroad. I believe this old bridge was a double leaf bascule bridge that was gone years ago and once was combined with the railroad bascule bridge present. The bridge is replaced with a high level fixed bridge.
