There is a fine through truss bridge on the east side of Bristol that is
over 100 years old. I photographed it maybe ten years ago but would
struggle trying to find it in my files. All the daily trains going to and
coming from Bristol pass through it. I attach a Google aerial showing the
location off I-81 (Exit 5).
