Lost Wabash RR Bridge over Wabash in Logansport, IN

This postcard catches both the north and south segments of the old truss Wabash bridge in the background that was replaced in 1988. (This is at full available resolution.) James Norwood indicates that this bridge was probably built by Wabash's predecessor: Toledo, Wabash & Western.

For the following two images, Bridge Hunter states "Photo courtesy of the Indiana State Department of Natural Resource, Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology." I'm glad they were able to figure out how to "View more info about Indiana historic bridges from the SHAARD database" because I was not able to.

This was a very unique skewed span with vertical endposts.

Jeffrey Bossaer posted nine photos with the comment: "There was two wrecks on the Wabash Railroad, Wabash River bridge at Attica, Indiana, April 5, 1914. The first wreck damaged the bridge enough that two spans collapsed under the next passenger train. Temporary repairs were made and trains were running one week later."
