What caught my eye is that you generally don't see control gates, Tainter in this case, on low head dams. It is also kinda rare to see all of the hoppers in a grain train looking the same. When I have seen it, the cars look new.

"Huron River Crossing"
A southbound Ann Arbor Railroad grain train, consisting entirely of Norfolk Southern power and equipment, crosses the curving bridge over the Huron River in Ann Arbor MI. 3-22-16
Update: Bridge Hunter indicates that the concrete-pier bridge was built in 1904. Probably after this steel-pier bridge had a boo-boo. I doubt if the Argo Dam existed before 1904 because the current bridge doesn't have enough clearance above the water to hold all of those cars under the bridge and above the water.
