Default Railroad Bridge

Odd how hard it is sometimes to take a picture of large things that capture the feeling you get when looking at it. Couldn't really capture it with this cool bridge, I like these pics well enough but couldn't get off to the side enough to get view I wanted (poison ivy was everywhere I needed to be) This was near Hodgen Oklahoma. I know the American Bridge company built alot of bridges but I don't know if the New York is just part of the company namej at that time or if maybe the bridge was built in new york and moved here at some point.

I was not too impressed until I got to the last photo and saw "Carnagie" emdossed on that old steel truss. Historic stuff there.

I like #4 the most, When I was a boy the other fellows said if you put your ear on the track you could hear the train coming, not sure if that's true.

Just for a little background that may or may not interest you, American Bridge company was mostly based here in the Pittsburgh area, lending its name to the town of Ambridge, PA. They built many of the more impressive bridges and buildings in the nation.
