Looks like this one may be a reused swing bridge. A Northern Pacific bridge book gives a date of 1929, far too recent for this structure. Like the other trusses on this line, I would suspect this was relocated here. Fortunately, a master set of NP bridge records exists in St. Paul, Minnesota at the Minnesota Historical Society.

yes, the tragic landslide in this little valley is what drew my attention to the region.

Hi Craig.

No doubt you've heard about the massive landslide on the Stillaguamish River east of here and have added all appropriate unlisted bridges. They plan to make the former Burlington Northern line into a full trail as soon as funds come in.

I've driven this stretch of highway, WA 530, before but never really paid attention to the hillsides. From the Bing/Google aerial it looked ready to go.
