What a location for films, though... And stills, of course!
Certainly seen better days but what an amazing piece of workmanship.

No precise stress calculations on that one - more like just make it tough and it'll be fine !

Looks like it might have come on the heels of the gold rush era. Now I have the North to Alaska song stuck in my head!
Dora, you are correct about the gold rush era. I lived in the foothills of CA in the town made famous by Mark Twain, i.e. Angels Camp, which is in Calaveras County. I used to ride horseback into the mountains 10 to 12 miles on narrow trails into the backcountry and old mining camps. There was huge mining equipment strewn everywhere, which had been hauled there by mules and manpower. I was amazed every time I went there at man's ingenuity and stubborn will to complete a task.
Beneath the town of Angeles Camp is a honeycombed system of tunnels and mine shafts and history is everywhere. Beautiful area.

I love those old railroad trestles that were far stronger than the sum of their parts...this one interesting as a combination of wood and steel.

And, of course in Alaska...there is a bridge to nowhere.

And Peter, the tracks and bridges we crossed while looking at the old ones were built the same way... newer wood. They built things stronger than necessary back then.
