Tahkenitch Lake on the Oregon coast has several old trestles, including one with a turntable for allowing larger boats to pass through. I would like to have gotten a better perspective, but I was at the mercy of my brother as he navigated our duck hunting boat. Also, it was pouring down rain so I wasn't about to swap lenses for something wider. Maybe next time...

Pretty sure you need to be current on your tetanus vaccination just to go near this thing...

Wonderful lens, Paul.

Lovely photos of the bridge.

You really need lots of DEET to keep the metal moths from eating you alive ... :rofl: .

Seriously, is that still in use? The steel is delaminating in all sorts of pretty important places!

Thanks, John :) The trestle itself is still in use; it's on the rail line between Eugene and Coos Bay Oregon, and primarily ships timber and lumber. There's over 6200 ft of pile trestle on the lake, and a few thousand more feet on adjacent Siltcoos Lake. I can't imagine the turntable still works, and it probably doesn't have a need any more as pleasure craft can easily fit underneath it. Back in the day I think there was some barge traffic for timber and coal. These coastal lakes are stunningly beautiful, and you can hear the roar of the ocean a mile or so away.

Deer Creek Bridge just south of Clinton, Missouri.

Bridge is in Flood plain of Truman Lake, and I have seen the lake flood water level over this bridge frequently. Road is used by Farmers and Rural residents as a short cut to Clinton from the Southeast. Popular spot for fishing when the water is at the right height.

Arquejols Viaduct on Approach - Arquejols - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-D3-07 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Mademoiselle Anne approaching the Arquejols viaduct on a warm French summer's day. The viaduct is part of the now disused Le Puy to Langogne railway line. Passenger traffic ceased on the line in 1939 and freight traffic came to an end in 1988.

The Chemin de Stevenson passes below the viaduct before ascending a steep track to a point above the railway line.

My wife and I were riding our tandem and approached this beautiful Grade II listed wooden toll bridge across the Mawddach river at Penmaenpool in mid-Wales.
The toll-keeper rushed out of his cottage, flagged us down and told us that he would have to charge us double, as there were two people on board. We were about to enquire how much it cost, when he smiled and said he was only joking, as there was only a fee for motorised traffic.
