  Note Joshua built the highest wooden train trestle bridge in the US in 1904, with a height of 115 feet and a span of 720 feet. The bridge burned down 100 years later due to careless use of fireworks. See the pictures in the "Notes" section, the bridge is spectacular and the picture of it on fire is even more spectacular.
