Wow... What a huge bridge! You really get a sense of it in those photos. You also get a sense of the terrain around it when looking at the irregularity of the shadow it casts. Very cool photos. Thanks for sharing them.

Took a photo of another info display where I parked. 12,436 tons of steel, 328,000 rivets and 7600 gallons of paint. And ten months to build...



I wanted to get a photo from the eastern approach looking west but CP has it fenced off for some distance along with the obligatory warning and no tresspassing signs... so no photo.

Great find Dwayne, Great pics and details. I'm sure these will be used as reference material for future projects. I really liked the ground level shot thru the bents, nice detail of the lap joined timbers. I live in SW Florida and we are not blessed with these types of structures.  Good Work!
