Thanks Roger! The bridge is indeed in decent shape and is in fact, in better shape than the road leading to and from it!

Michael

Nice one! Old bridges are the best! F&L

Thanks Dave!

It was being converted in loft apartments, but caught on fire two years ago. Hoping they won't demolish it.

Michael

Thank you sir!

I agree. This land was part of Camp Croft, which was a US Army training camp and POW camp during WWII. I wonder if it was part of the camp or if it was built afterwards?

This building is from Cairo's oil & gas boomtown days. It's about all that remains in this town.

This is Tunnel #12 on the North Bend Rail Trail State Park

Thanks! This bridge is in the heart of town & was built after a tunnel was built. At the time, 4 different lines converged here. The line on this side of the tracks wanted a more direct connection to the route on the other side of the tracks, so they wouldn't have to use any of Southern Railways tracks. They built a tunnel under Southern's tracks and this bridge was built over the tracks leading to the tunnel, as they still wanted to maintain a connection to Southern. After several mergers, it was decided that this connection was no longer needed.
