Look under Branch Line structures. Bridge No. 2288 over Track Fork is a 1,244.17 steel viaduct. It is 123 feet high at its highest point. Two pictures of the viaduct on pg 126 in NWHS publication, “Dry Fork – Norfolk & Western Branch Line.”________________________________________________________________________________________The archives has ICC Book # 12VA - Structures Radford to Bristol and All Branches - Apparently structures onthe Abingdon Branch were removed before the book was donated to N&WHS.   Bridges on the North CarolinaExtension and Speedwell Branches (and others) are included in the volume.  EXAMPLE:  There is a plandated Apr. 14, 1886 of  a 5-thru truss span on the Cripple Creek Extension.       Harry Bundy
