One Thought on “Wordless Wednesday #124

    I agree that the entire scene looks sketchy or more accurately poorly maintained. There is a dip of both rails as they transition from the “ballasted” track to the open deck steel bridge; and, the wood stringers of the open deck wood bridge have been bent due to the uneven support of the piers. This has apparently allowed “high joints” on the rails crossing the wood open deck bridge. My guess is that , in the pre-FRA era, they crossed the bridges at about 25 MPH.
