    Hi all,
    I stumbled across this site;
    http://www.historicbridges.org
    Appartently someone who LOVES old brings went around photographing them right down to the rivets, cataloging them and adding comments.

    Hopefully it will be a nice resource for the modellers.

    Those bridges bring back many fond memories of my childhood. It scares me to death to think of it now. The water was about 20 feet below the bridge, and about 5 feet deep. We would climb up the ends and walk across the top.

    I moved from there 60 years ago and the %^*&(^*(&) politicians done scrapped it and put in a 'modern' one. I still have good memories, tho.
