Excerpt from Wikipedia

Stoney Creek Bridge is a 200-metre-long (656 ft) truss arch bridge in British Columbia, Canada. It carries the Canadian Pacific Railway single track of 90 m (295 ft) over the Stoney Creek, between Revelstoke and Golden. A wooden bridge was originally built on the site in 1885, and the current steel structure was built in 1893. A second set of arches was added in 1929 to handle heavier traffic. The original bridge was the tallest wooden bridge in the world at that time.
