NS/CNOTPSou/CS "Tenbridge" over Tennessee River in Chattanooga, TN

(Bridge Hunter, Historic BridgesSatellite)

To explain the title, Cincinnati built and owns the Cincinnati Southern route, but it now leases it to the Cincinnati, New Orleans & Texas Pacific, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Norfolk Southern.

Great day around the Chattanooga area yesterday with Alex Minahan. I had some work to take care of and wanted to get NS 8025 the Monongahela on NS 202 so it was worth the 10 hour round trip from Memphis. Also finally got my 1st drone shot of TennBridge and spent some time around Nickajack Lake with the drone for the first time as well. We did have to drive up to the Tennessee River bridge in Loudon, TN on the NS Knoxville District to get the 8025 in good light but it was worth it!! Only 2 NS Heritage units remaining for me now; NYC & PC leading in good light!! 4/4/2020

Dennis DeBruler Note the round stone pier. There must have been a swing span here originally.

Unfortunately, the one day I stayed in Chatanooga, it was cloudy, and sometimes rainy.
Abby caught it in better weather.

[Note the crane and cofferdam on the right for the work on the lock. I added a couple of my photos as comments]

Note the round, cut-stone pier in some of the photos on this page. That would have held the swing span of the previous bridge.

This bridge has its own facebook page: Tenbridge.

"Line is owned by and was built for the Cincinnati Southern Railway which is owned by the city of Cincinnati, Ohio. The Line was leased to Southern Railroad, now part of Norfolk Southern." [Bridge Hunter]

September 9, 2017 - A southbound Norfolk Southern freight train, with NS 1081 and CSXT 9039 as power, head south across the Tenbridge over the Tennessee River as it heads into Chattanooga, TN, in the glow of the setting sun, as a northbound freight waits for it to pass. The Tenbridge is a vertical-lift railroad bridge over the Tennessee River in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It has a main span of 310 feet.
The original span was a swing span with a center pivot that was originally built in ca. 1879/1880, but is no longer raised for river traffic however. It was replaced by a vertical lift span in 1917, but the lift towers and machinery were not installed until 1920. It remains a very busy crossing on the Cincinnati, New Orleans and Texas Pacific Railway, a major subsidiary of the Norfolk Southern Railway. The bridge carries two mainline tracks across the river.
