    Well since you did, That was great!!!!! I love bridges and since I'm a newbie and was not around to participate the first time through, I'm grabbing my chance now.
    The first three are in the Southern states and of course the last one (my all time favorite) is in New Mexico.

    1st picture: Trestle crossing a road in Ozark, Alabama.
    2nd picture: Trestle over Bayou Chico in Pensacola, Florida. This was on the Correy Field branch of the Frisco. Sadly, it's been torn down. :cry:

    Here are a few I took of the Georgetown Loop in Colorado. I wish I had taken more from the station, but my son and I were too excited about riding the train!

    Pity that the company that was running it for the CHS isn't anymore. Some kind of contract disagreement apparently. I hope they can get it back running next year....

    Anyone have some pics of a highway bridge crossing over the tracks? I need to model one to serve as a viewblock for the track as it goes to hidden trackage.

    thanks

    Our local monster bridge....very scarey on to drive on!

    The Huey P. Long Bridge, completed in 1935, is the longest and highest steel railroad bridge in the United States. It is 4.35 miles long from abutment to abutment. It is a combination rail - highway structure and provides a four-lane highway, two one-way lanes on each side of a double track railroad. This thing is a real trip to drive across.....you got to have nerves of steel if you are in the inside lane with an 18 wheeler on one side and a train on the other. The traffic lanes are only 9' wide with no shoulder.

    Huey P. Long

    Huey P. Long, this photo looks to be some time in the 1940's-early 50's, as there is a steam train above and a pasture below, my dad's friend used to rent the ground under the trestle. He was horse trader and pastured animals there for sale. On each side of the river where the highway part of the bridge met the ground there was a traffic circle and he would sell his horses from the east bank location.
