Behold its existence. My cousin took some beautiful shots. :-) https://bridgehunterschronicles.wordpress.com/2020/03/07/cas...

Good thing to know that the bridge is in good hands.

My cousin plans to get some pics during the next week or so since she and her family live nearby. As soon as I have them, I will include them.

Any unaccounted-for ponies in the area? There does appear to be one on the Twin Brooks Thresher Grounds parade road, as well as two pedestrian bridges.

Looks like it would be a good home for unwanted HBs.

These are a bunch of folks who appreciate old iron.
