The historic Kinzua Viaduct in Pennsylvania, originally built from iron, was the highest and longest in the world at the time of construction, measuring 301 feet high and 2,053 feet long.  It was rebuilt using steel in 1900 and stood firm for more than a century before being mostly destroyed by a tornado in 2003. Childhood memories, so sad that it's not the same.

Railroad bridge Cotter Arkansas  My granddad was an engineer on the White River Branch of the Missouri Pacific.  My uncle was a Fireman and Brakeman, my Coffee uncles and dad worked for them briefly.  Cotter became a town through the efforts of the railroad.  I still like to hear the whistle and hear the rumble of the train as it moves through my town many miles away .  My father and grandfather used to dive from the bridge when the water was deeper (before the dam),
