    As promised in last nights chat here are the pics of the low level trestle that I and my friend Tim found entirely by accident while train chasing.Due to the size of the pics I will post them seperately.

    There is one like that in Starkville, MS. It crosses over a street near the Baptist Church in downtown. I wish I had gotten a few pictures of it when I was there at MSU. It was my favorite road to drive down because of that bridge.

    :( *sigh* :(

    Live and learn.

    That looks like the type of trestles the Santa Fe built over the bays and marshes on the "Surfline" between L.A. and San Diego.
    Amtrac still runs over the wooden trestles at high speed!

    Sorry Catt, all I get are little squares with the torn picture sign in it.
    Am I the only one who doesn't get the pictures?

    Ron,

    I've had the same thing happen to me on other threads, and the next day I was able to see the missing pictures. Sometimes the squares, sometimes nothing but the text. Try rebooting and looking again.

    Jon,there are quite a few of these and bigger ones too.The one I see at Muskegon actually forms the first part of a two bridge section that crooses over I96 on a ballasted deck girder bridge.(I've been told that there are really two short trestles in that location.
