I am fairly sure those are WVDH markings I have seen them on other WV bridges . All though I am not up on their number system.
And the blue paint probably did not start until the 1970s

Was this part of an old mainline alignment or was this a branch line? I'm also curious about the mileage markings on the bridge. It was painted "1.28" in two different locations using two different fonts.

The mileage increased from west to east. They sure look like railroad markings and I've never seen anything like this applied by a state DOT on bridges.
