Menomonee River 1904 Bridge (Bridge Hunter; Historic Bridges; 3D Satellite)
The motivation for this post is to record the link of the 1947 operation timetable that Jon Roma provided when I asked for the speed limits for these bridges after I learned that some passenger trains can go over the EJ&E diamond at Rondout Junction at 100 mph. And all of them were allowed to do 90mph across the diamond. His complete comment on a post:
The only two drawbridges I know of on the First Subdivision of CMStP&P's Milwaukee Division are KK Bridge (which as of 9147 had a 60/40 speed restriction), and the Menominee River bridge, which fell within a 30/25 speed restriction that included curves coming into the old Milwaukee passenger station.
The whole Milwaukee Road timetable scan is available at https://www.jonroma.net/.../CMStP%26P.%20Milwaukee... if you are interested.

You can see part of the tray on the left that holds the couterweights for the short end of this bobtail bridge. This reminds me of Milwaukee's Z-2 Bridge in Chicago.
