BNSF+Amtrak/Santa Fe ABT Trunion over Old River at Orwood, CA

(Bridge Hunter, Historic Bridges, 3D Satellite)

I found this bridge while looking for the Benicia-Marinez Bridge. Since ABT Trunion bridges are rare, any I find are worth noting. It is also rare because the movable span is built with steel girders instead of a truss. Bridge Hunter does not indicate the BNSF predecessor railroad, but my 1928 RR Atlas does show that Santa Fe came north through the center of California and then west through here to Oakland, CA.
