Major bucks aside, I remember the complete Kinzua  Bridge, walked it several times. Historically even the remains have are significant but honestly it's only a shadow of it's former self.

Mantua - Tyco Also produced radial roofed passenger cars. There were two types. Combine car and Passenger car. They were called 1860 cars.  
 
This is the 1860 Combine. Central Pacific colors by Tyco.

Agree. Old bridge would become "clutter" as per the bighams projected view of new structure. Progress in this case is good, new  bridge is elegant

 
The Kinzua Viaduct tragedy also comes to mind. That said, perhaps a truncated section of the bridge. That, however, would take major bucks that would be better spent on road maintenance (no new roads please) and transit.

squeezing in behind the engine house and jammed up against the backdrop is a mock up of 1/2 model compressed Boon St Station.  
 
this is the 4th mock up, each one seems to be bigger than the one before.  it has grown from 7 1/2 inches to 11 inches so far.  next try will lengthen the open shed end.

That is the scuttlebutt.    
 
When will it happen or will it. Wait back and see! Since the word of that power move came to the surface there have been some changes in MGT over that dept.
