And no, railfans, it has nothing to do with the Toledo, St. Louis & Western "Cloverleaf" Railroad.
Interesting. I wonder if the cloverleaf portal design is associated with Edge Moor? I know the Cicero Creek Bridge in Indiana appears to be nearly identical to this span. There are also two Pennsylvania RR bridges in Adams County and in Muncie as well, although they have slightly different designs.
Finally got permission to explore the opposite side although covered with overgrowth and wild raspberry. The approach ties are too soft to get to the main span but I did manage to get a shot of the building plaque; 1893 Built by Edge Moor Bridge Works Wimington (Delaware)
My apologies to Mike for claiming this was not the bridge he said it was. I mistook this bridge for a different PC RR one over Duck Creek-same abandoned right of way though. The one I was talking about is north of Whipple OH.
It is in the middle of a farmer's field near the intersection of T 16 and T 315 roads. Here is a picture I took from Google earth of it.

Still crazy how much this resembles the Cicero Creek Bridge!
Although difficult, my hope is to get a few pics from the opposite side of the creek.
Nice shot Mike. Snap a few more if you get a chance!
This is my photo. I pass this bridge on Caywood Road on the way to my daughter's house once or twice a week. Some years ago a portion of the trestle that passed over the road was burned so that portion was removed away from the road. You can still see the burn marks on the heavy beams facing the road. The bridge now belongs to Ken Strahler and is part of the Duck Creek Farm.
The picture of the bridge listed for Duck Creek is not the bridge over Duck Creek. The actual bridge does not have a paved road running in front of it. It is in the middle of a farmer's field. Look at Google Earth for further proof. The farmer is using the bridge to access his fields. The comments from the person believing it to actually being the bridge in Indiana are correct.
Are we certain that they are not the same bridge? I pulled the location off Flickr.
Wow, when I first saw the picture I thought i was looking at this one...
