There are similarities, Peter, but the rusty bridge wins hands down!

Looks as if it needs a lick of paint..
....peter:): a lick of paint would ruin 50 years of natural colouring Chris....petersmile
This reminds me of the saying "side by side they face each other," for some reason. smile
....peter:): i like the way that you put that Ginnie... each is watching over the others shoulder to see what's coming up or down the river grin ....petersmile
Joli pont métallique, beau sujet de photo! bonne journée Pierre
....peter:): Salut Roland ... ces deux ponts font un bon couple ... l'argent doit être la dame !!....peter/pierresmile

Les deux ponts sont beaux mais j'ai aussi une préférence pour le plus vieux.
....peter:): Le pont en argent est probablement aussi vieux, mais le chemin de fer peint rarement ses ponts au Canada Martine...bise....peter/pierresmile

I like this photograph of the two bridges Peter and I agree with your choice.
....peter:): thanks Chad... most of the RR bridges are left to rust... it doesn't harm the steel that much and after 60 years or so they could build a new bridge from what the maintenance would cost on this one...petersmile

on ne rencontre pas souvent ces ponts
JP
....peter:): les chemins de fer ont été construits en premier et l'autoroute suivait la même route côte à côte JP!

A bit of rust always adds character Peter
....peter:): and a lot of rust makes it a masterpiece Billgrin ....petersmile
great shot. having taken several long distance trains crossing over rivers, i love the looks of those truss structures, Peter.
....peter:): they are strong bridges Ayush... the rusty old railroad bridge is likely older and much stronger than the highway bridge....petersmile

They are colour coded to the tracks/road they carry.
....peter:): the odd couple seem to compliment each other Louis... i just love rust though....petersmile
The old and the new looking great beside each other.
....peter:): this odd couple seem to compliment each other Mary... i just love rusty RR bridge....petersmile
The rusty one has more character. I see it has a railway line, is it still in use?
....peter:): the rusty one is likely more solid than the highway bridge Brian... and it is in still use with several freight cars passing daily... they stopped the passenger run about two years ago... now we have to travel an hour to catch the train to ...
the end of the line in Moose Factory (south end of James Bay in Ontario... the run starts in the south at North Bay, Ontario....petersmile

my one, too - I hope not out of work.
....peter:): my favorite is still being used with several freight cars passing daily Philine....petersmile
It's also rather less blatant on the landscape!
....peter:): it blends in with nature in some ways Tom....petersmile
Lovely contrast between the two bridges smile
Quite a coexistence of the old and the new Peter... Nice find and nice capture... smile
