Contact Russell Holter at the Washington Dept of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. email@example.com. He co-authored a book on the Tacoma Eastern and is one of the better historical resources for the line, including that trestle.Is there any information or plans relating to that huge, ex Milwaukee road, wood trestle in Tacoma that ends at Freight house square. I would like to model that bridge for a layout but I don't have any information.
The trestle is not particularly scenic, there are lots of buildings in the way of most viewpoints of the trestle. But here is a shot that shows some of the trestle, and also locates it, with the Freighthouse Square Station in the background. (not my photo.)I was in Tacoma last year and I do not remember about the Milwaukee bridge. Is it possible to have a picture of it here?
