NP - Heart River Bridge
Posted August 20, 2021, by John Marvig (marvigj27 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Of the two crossings of the Heart River on the NP mainline, this bridge appears to be the same as:

http://bridgehunter.com/nd/morton/bh51669/

The bridge to the east (1st Crossing) was replaced in 1960, and was sent to a washout on the branch line south of Mandan (http://bridgehunter.com/nd/morton/fort-lincoln-trolley/). It seems that the only bridge this photo could be is the still extant BNSF bridge.

Because of this, I propose that the two pages are merged.
