Raymond abandoned rail bridge

The old abandoned swinging rail bridge in Raymond, WA. A beautiful piece of engineering, such a shame that it sits and rots. The rest of the rails on this grade have been long salvaged, and it's now a walking trail that streches from Pe Ell to South Bend. Minus this strech where the bridge is open. There's been talk about swinging the bridge to connect the gap, and finishing the deck so it would be safe, but they've yet to come up with the funding for that venture...
