I am modeling the N&W in the early 70's from this bridge to Bluefield.
I'm looking for info on the bridge that connects the former VGN mainline on the north side of the New River to the N&W mainline on the south side near Narrows, VA.
I'd like to know when it was built.
What color is it? I have a photo and I can't tell is it started out silver and has weathered dark or black and has weathered light.
What trains would use the former VGN to Roanoke vs the N&W tracks on the other side.
I'm assuming the VGN bridge at Glen Lym came down around the same time. Is this correct?
