On my way to Sparks, NV last week-end I discovered another, similar bridge over I80 a few miles East of Auburn.
Still the UP (ex-SP) main line, but the bridge was higher, longer, and uses stacked deck girders instead of trusses.
I was in a hurry and had no camera, so I took no photos.

If Alwin can crank up the Google machine, maybe he can find pics?

Cheers,

Scott

Scott, I think you mean this one:





Paste this co-ordinates in Google and you're there:
39.123468,-120.939918


At the satellite view you can see there is a curve in the bridges, I've got no idea why.
A straight bridge is easier/cheaper to built and I see no obstacles for a straight one.

Anyone else with more crazy bridges?

I like them.

Another I find is a double deck rotary bridge.
Trains on the lower deck and street traffic on the upper deck.

Crazy enough? :bg:

These are the coords for goolge, 38.586047,-121.505136

And the next ones.
Three in one link.
Maybe not as crazy/strange as the previous ones,
but I think everyone here likes them:

What's the name for such kind of bridge?

I guess it was built like that,
so when it was not economical enough to keep operating the railroad
the logs would be recovered and sent to the sawmill with minimal damage.
