It's amazing that the Rock Island bridge piling are still back in those trees.
@uptrain Yes, too bad the bridge is gone. I suppose it might have been a through-truss, given the length needed.
@Maersk.146 I'd tend to agree. I suppose it could have been a plate girder kind of like the Rock flyover down around Leeds, but for the era it was built, truss is probably a greater possibility. I've certainly never seen a picture from here when it was still on top of the abutments.
