Hmm, still no guesses? This bridge is in Texas. That should narrow down the potential options somewhat.

I think I found it, but since I've had a couple of turns recently, I'll wait a bit to let somebody else have a chance.  But don't dawdle!

Is that the old Brazoria Bridge over the Brazos River?

I was thinking that too but then I doubted it. Really scratching my head on this one.

Yep, that was my guess as well.  Assuming the poster confirms, Good catch, 1995hoo!

Lucky guess! I will edit this post shortly to include a photo for everyone. I suspect it will be too easy, but that’s OK.

Edited via Tapatalk to upload a photo. I have no idea whether the bridges have names, so guessing where they are is good enough in my view.

Yeah, I play too much train sim… that is definitely it though. It is at the south part of that weird I-95 split…

NJTP over the NE Corridor

Of course. On Monday there was a problem with a rail bridge near Secaucus and the Acela I was riding had to back up, then switch to another track. It was stopped right there for a while and I took the picture just because for many forum members it was likely to be a very different view of a very familiar place. The one on the right is the Eastern Spur, the other is the Western Spur.

"plain" is up next.

I recognize that bridge from my travels, but I don't have a good bridge picture queued up, so I won't say where it is for now.

Damn! I looked at the other bridge in Galifax, which looks like the same bridge, but couldn’t find the spot. I forgot Halifax had 2 bridges

Also, this is my 1000th post!!

Alright then! Well, I have a bridge! Or, maybe not. I think it is, so I’ll post it.

If you know what type of bridge this is, this one might be too easy. But for those who have no idea where to begin, it is not in the US.

Is it the Vizcaya Bridge in Portugalete, Spain?

Here is my submission.  I think it’s a pretty cool looking double bridge.  Shouldn’t be that hard to guess, so no clues right now.
