Wabash Truss Bridge over Rock Island

(Satellite) It is unusual to see a truss bridge used for a railroad overpass. Normally steel girders are used. According to the satellite image, the truss is still being used. Note that both railroads have fresh ballast. Metra seems to be doing a good job of maintaining routes they had to save from abandonment.
