Big Bridge

Huge bridge near the cemetery and could use renovation but it's still worth seeing.. Not much to do just take a look or some pictures. But I loved the cemetery that's right there.

The Big Four bridge is one of the most unique attractions I have ever seen. It is a railroad bridge rich in history. Fun to see, especially if you get to watch a train cross it.

Stopped by to try to take pictures of the bridge. It was raining too hard so I did not get to do that. I do love seeing these types of old bridges though. Was not disappointed.

Interesting to see. There have been known to be some tragic cicumstances with this bridge. People have jumped to their death off the bridge. Kids used to hang out on the bridge and drop things onto passing cars below. While there is some bad history with the bridge, it is a Sidney Landmark.

Sad to see Big Four Bridge is deteriorating. Seems the railroad is in charge of fixing it up and doesn't. Sad, for it is an amazing bridge, but falling apart.

There is not a lot to do here but look at the bridge and take pictures of it. It is defiantly something to see. It was built in the early 1900"s and is amazing how they accomplished this task. It is still being used by the Chessie Railroad system to this day.

The Big Four Bridge is a local landmark. If you are from town, you don't think much of it. If you're from out if town, it's a pretty cool thing to see. Rumor has it that workers and horses constructing the bridge got stuck inside.
