Wolf Creek Bridge
Posted April 10, 2021, by Mike Kerkau (mjkerkau [at] gmail [dot] com)

The Oklahoma historic bridge inventory referenced a camelback pony truss design:

"Camelback pony trusses are also a curved top chord variant of the Pratt design. While the Parker has a smoothly curving top chord, the camelback pony truss has a more angular curved top chord of exactly five beams."


And they do distinguish a camelback pony design from a Parker pony design (which is on the page right before).

This one, as outlined, has a five-beam design, as do:

BH 28834 - http://bridgehunter.com/ok/comanche/140960000000000/ (since replaced in 2017)

BH 28835 - http://bridgehunter.com/ok/comanche/164560000000000/

I updated both for a Parker-type for the time being, and I'm leaning towards the latter being that type anyway, as that one seems to be more of a curved design rather than angular. Both the former and THIS bridge seem more angular, but neither one is as angular as the one in the above-linked description.
