Comparing the photo with ones in "Mexican Narrow Gauge"

The bridge was built for the "Ferrocarril Mapini Railway" owned by the "Penoles Mining Co",
at Camp Sur to connect the mine with the railway to the smelter.

Empty ore cars back hauled to the mine with a cable line,
from the looks of it the engine is approaching the bridge to pickup a cut of loaded ore cars.

Mine and Railway lasted into the 1940s ?.
