CXS Pony Plate Bridge

This is a multiple unit pony plate bridge over the Nolichucky River (in the background) and some privately-held land.  This is looking northwest.  The bridge is about 680′ long and belongs to CSX (old Clinchfield).   There’s a big dent on the top of the plate nearest the camera, indicating that some time in the past, something got off the tracks.  To the left of where I’m standing (36.09812, -82.44180) is the old community of Unaka Springs.

Vandals have relieved all sections of this bridge of their manufacturer’s date plates.  Boo.  Hiss.
