    A few new images of some old woodworking:







    Those three are of the mud creek bridge, near Milton, WV









    These are from the Staats Mill bridge, near Ripley WV.

    Ned,

    Thanks for the intimate photos of the covered bridge. I had never seen the construction details before.

    You do very good photography.

    Thanks again and Enjoy,

    Thanks Jim,
    here are some more 'recent' images (you can find many more on my photo blog if you're interested btw)...









    Those were from a recent trip near Clarksburg WV (Morgantown/Bridgeport area) it is called the Fisher Run Bridge







    those were of a similar vintage bridge, called the Simpson Creek bridge

    and last (for tonight)
    here are several images of the Barrackville bridge, including more construction details:

    Pretty cool, Ned. I like that last shot showing the internal structure. Thanks for sharing.

    Great pics Ned! Would love to see some of those in person. I think we may have one up north of us that's been restored, but can't recall any others. Most are old steel truss bridges that were formerly rail road bridges.

    edit: A quick search and didn't find any, but came across this site:

    The coolest one is probably the 8th street tunnel, which was buried and forgotten about until a excavation for new building unearthed part of it. They have been considering making it a museum at some point. A few older pics showing each end of the tunnel, the one with the trolleys coming out is now a part area with a fountain.

    Nice pic's Ned. Your in a great area for finding good subject matter.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
