Bridge Lift

Post #1 by FOWLER MAN » Fri Apr 29, 2016 9:39 pm

I came across these old pics on the net,
That low-loader must have been popping along a bit to lift the bride off the stonework like that. The O&K on the trailer seems to have go off light looking at the damage to the bridge.

Your better to die trying than live on your knees begging

Three bent rams on the O&K but not beyond repair unlike the bridge; looks like they'd need Evel Knievel to bring the next train down those lines. :P
