metal of the superstructure ( under the cement part ) as my subject.
You can judge, but getting the curve in the picture was tough because
of the piers and other trees that prevented seeing the whole 9 yards.
probably is the best as you can distinctly see the curvature of the
bridge. If you are in doubt, put a straight edge against the monitor
you will see that the line formed by the bottom of the bridge NOT
straight, and in fact is near the same curvature of the cement just
& are ok,
but camera angle and distance from the bottom of the bridge makes it
harder to see. But then again, if you put a straight edge against the
monitor you still will see that the line formed by the bottom of the
bridge is NOT straight.
Don't give me any crap about the 'curvature of the monitor screen'
causing the curve as you can move those pictures around on your screen
to view at either side of your monitor. Also, you should see all the
pictures at the same ( almost ) screen location; where you can then
note that there are left AND right curves. Curved Bridges - YES - they
is a picture of
the old crow that just left and now is on Bob's plate.
As a side note, the I90.jpg pix is the location of the derailment a few
years back where two or three cars tipped and landed on I90. I don't
remember if there were any injuries, but it sure messed up traffic (
both car and rail ) for awhile.
Also, if there is anyway you can get to Spokane, it is a great place to
railfan. If you do come in to Spokane from the East on HiWay 2, let me
know when you will be in Libby and I will show ya some great railfan
spots in the area.
