The bridge as it was in 1948, prior to the closure of the line. Only a mere 56 years old then.

View from the Eastern Side, where there is a small parking area.
View from the Western side, accessed via Bridge Road. Most parts of the bridge are still in position, even though they may be rotten.
View from down at track level, sag in the bridge is readily apparent from this angle. However it is good to remember that it has been in place now for 123 years!
Low angle view looking up at the deck. Bit of a crafty-arty-farty shot, but this time it came off.
This bridge was pretty solidly built to take heavy logging traffic.
A great testimony to its builders that the bridge is still standing after 123 years, despite probably having no maintenance since the 1950s.
I am guessing no-one is expected to venture further down the ROW, as it is pretty blocked beyond the bridge.
OK, just one more clever-dick shot. Notice the broken outer stay on the left, while the right side one is missing altogether.
