UI&E - Deep Gorge Trestle
The lengths of this bridge and the number of spans appear to be in dispute, with various sources touting its length as 463' or approximately 480', its span lengths as 46' or 30', and with either 10 or 16 spans. It stood 122'9" high.
1877 has also been given as an alternate build date.
