Bayou Bridge
Title:  Bayou Bridge
Description:  Mike Walsdorf caught ICG GP11 8730 leading the southward Shore Line District local onto the bridge over Bayou Lacombe. The train has a covered hopper and two pulpwood cars. Bridge NA44.28 consisted of a 151-foot plate girder swing span built by the American Bridge Co. in 1907 -- when the branch was being constructed -- with a ballasted-deck approach trestle on each end. The bridge was controlled from a little shed on the east bank of the bayou and was normally left open for marine traffic. Whenever a train ran, someone from the track department would close it so the train could cross.
