I also have an Images of America book called "Along the Sandusky River" which claims that these railroad spans were the only bridges left in Tiffin over the Sandusky after the 1913 flood, which apparently took out the spans on Huss, Washington, Market, and Monroe streets.

Thanks for taking the initiative, Paul.
On it for the PRR bridge.

Those bridges should have individual entries instead of being considered part of one, as they're separate structures on different lines.
The south outer bridge was used by the Pennsylvania Railroad and the north outer bridge used by the New York Central.
They are all cool looking in my opinion. Although I am partial to triple and quadruple bascule bridges myself.
Not as impressive as actual triple-barrelled trusses.
Reminds me of the Blissfield Triple Bridge that used to stand in Blissfield, Michigan.
I don't know how many truss bridge triplets have ever been built in the U.S., but I bet not very many.
Wow, thatís quite the collection of different trusses!
