The bridges of the Big South Fork valley
I took in a gorgeous and warm weekend and ventured down to Big South
Fork National River & Recreation Area in Tennessee to do some early
spring backpacking. While I was down there, I stumbled across many old
and abandoned railroads that were worth more than a few photographs,
but some time researching about their origins and demise.
But what is also interesting is the unique array of bridges that is
within the Big South Fork. From rare Whipple trusses to modern steel
girders, this area has it all. I've barely scratched the surface.
Included in this update is --
Leatherwood Big South Fork Cumberland River Bridge (TN 297)
Burnt Mill Truss Bridge
Oneida & Western Railroad Big South Fork Cumberland River Bridge
Cincinnati Southern New River Bridge
Over 25 new photographs and 4 new entries have been added. Enjoy!
