Postcard available on ebay 11-6-12 describes this as the "only four track swing bridge in the world" Conneaut Harbor, OH
Internet imagery appears to show one road lane and three tracks, unsure if swing bridge still operates.
This swing bridge is still in good shape I visited Conneaut yesterday I thought this bridge was gone this swing span is still operable.
