Trip on Hwy 12 West2 July 26, 2013 - 26-Edit-Edit copy(1619 Train 20x30)

A BNSF train is nearly across the Span 27 trestle bridge that is just outside Minot, North Dakota.

The only identification that I could see (at least without trespassing, which I did not do) was this so I assume this was how the bridge was known I know nothing at all about bridges, trestle or otherwise, but this one looked rather rusty and frankly it didn’t occur to me that it was still in use until the first train passed overhead. Before we get to that I’ll post a few other photos of details of the bridge.

A great deal of train traffic passes along the Columbia Gorge through tunnels as well as directly adjacent to the river.
