NP West Seattle Bridge

This photo was taken just after two trains (BNSF followed immediately by UP) had crossed over westbound.
I'm sorry I don't know how old it is. I'll see if I can find out. About a hundred years ago, before this area was created by landfill, the rails crossed over the water on a long trestle. I'm not sure if this is the remnant of the line or not. I'll see what I can find out about that, too.
 
The haze in that photo really gives it an old time look. When I first saw it, I thought it was a vintage photo. Great shot!
