TRAIN TRESTLE OVER THE WESTFIELD RIVER



Chester MA - I was driving down the Keystone Arch Bridges Trail looking for the "Arch Bridges". I did photograph one(more on that in the future). Anyway the road got a little too rough (see photo below). I was afraid of ripping out the transmission of my wife's truck so I did not go any farther; the photo doesn't really show how rough it was. I had already done a lot of hiking and didn't feel like hiking too far so I went down to the river and found this railroad trestle crossing the river. It reminded me of a bridge in the mountains out West somewhere even though it was just the Berkshires.

I drive along some rough roads myself so know to go slow.
We have the old wooden tressles on the railways here and one old railbed now a walking or cycle trail had 12 tressles destroyed by fire but are being rebuilt, these are at Myra Canyon to the north of us, when they are completed next year, I will be going to see them.

I just posted a pic of a wooden rail trestle on my Okanagan Daily Photo Blog, now used for recreation.
