I don't know of any drawings of these particular structures. The one we
scrapped out at Rawl, West Virginia last spring was pretty near
identical to the photo you showed. I have attached a photo of it with
the new signal in the background directly behind it. Of course, these
signals were Position Lights when they were first erected.

That particular structure had the US Steel logo on it. We could tell
where the factory rivets were and the bolts used in the field
installations. In taking it apart, we could tell how it had been put
What is it exactly that you'd like to know? I may be able to help you.

Does anyone happen to have good drawings of the N&W cantilever bridge?
(neither of the society's Signal booklets have this).

This is pretty essential for my layout. This is the one I'm talking about:
