While the Gilpin had small "bridges", the Silver City NG had "trestles" the longest of which was this one over Pinos Altos Creek in NM.




This one was over 250' long and 24' high over the creek. Imagine little GT #1 and ore cars crossing this. It only lasted 2 years, was burned down just before abandonment.

I trust Keith won't get upset by this hijacking of his thread but I think he will understand.
