Acerca de


Wonderful book for the bridge maven or railroad fan with over 240 black and white and 25 color photos that show examples of all types of railroad bridges in the Midwest. The area has a remarkably diverse collection of bridges that encompass all the different types of bridges found in the entire US, including bascules (hinged), vertical lift, and swing (longest in the world!). Includes all the moveable bridges in Chicago and aerial photos of bridges across the Mississippi, Ohio, Illinois, Wabash Rivers. Fascinating separate chapters on bridges over the Kaskaskia, Sangamon, and Kankakee Rivers analyzing the different bridge types used to cross the same stream as it widens: from beams to trestles, to plate girder, to truss and then to arches. Includes section on bridge types, life as a bridge tender and a history of rail bridges with a discussion of possible future developments. The author weaves in his own journey over these bridges in way that makes the reader want to join him on the road. With maps. 216 pages.
