Another truss bridge from an abandonned railway line. This photo was taken back in the summer, when the weather was warm and the fishing was good.

  1. Summer seems so long ago!

  2. I wonder if he caught anything?

  3. i love this rustic truss bridge. this scene looks similar to the places in my childhood.:p

  4. Judging by the muddy colour of the water it must of rained the day before. It’s nice of them to leave the bridge intact. There’s a lot of the old rail lines being turned into hiking trails. Keep up the great work with you photos!

  5. I love this scene! Makes me feel like I’m in an old movie for some reason 🙂

  6. Your description (“when the weather was warm and the fishing was good”) reminds «Louis» of the song “Summertime” from Gershwin’s “Porgy and Bess”

    A welcome contribution to Sunday Bridges.

  7. Thanks for the comment on my blog.

    I love old bridges like the one in your photo. When did the last train cross the bridge?

  8. at one time, it must have been an important bridge, I wonder if people protested when they decided to stop using it.

  9. Re: my Whatipu bridge, that sign was so small, that it is understandable that people miss it. You may be right that it is for cyclists,
