Kentucky truss bridge

This solidly built double-track 1925 Fort Pitt Bridge Works (Pittsburgh PA) structure spans the Cumberland River just west of CSX’s Loyall Yard.  The bridge, in three sections, all box trusses (for a total of around 410′ in length), is at 36.85093, -83.36837.  It’s on an active line that winds on into Pineville.  This view is looking more or less west.  To give you a sense of scale, that’s my buddy standing in the second section on the right hand side of the tracks.
