Alright, I royally screwed up my spelling correction. Here is the whole thing again:

OK, to get away from some of the troll threads posted lately, here is a sample image from the John W Barriger photo collection available for free on Flickr.

(scroll around to see the entire image)

Above is the SP&S bridge (now BNSF) over the Columbia River (between Wishram WA and Celilo OR), BEFORE it was converted to a lift span.

Reproduced here are comments posted to that photo:

Probably the eastward view from
North Dalles, WA. The bridge
is over the Columbia River
between The Dalles, OR and
North Dalles.

We're still looking at the Oregon Trunk bridge. This was before the Dalles dam was completed. The southernmost span was originally a swing span as seen here; when the dam was completed in 1957, the larger span to the north of it was converted to a vertical lift span.

Thanks, swaool, I can see it now.

One might expect that Barriger photos are mostly Eastern lines, but for example, there are 89 photos in the SP&S collection, and over 1500 Southern Pacific photos.

Here is a good point to look for your favorite (pre-merger) railroad:
