Guffey from Above
Another view of Guffey Bridge. Some interesting facts about this bridge, it was constructed in 1897 and built to carry heavily laden trains loaded with gold and silver ore. Therefore was built with Parker Through-Truss design, fabricated in Pittsburge and shipped to Nampa Idaho by rail. It was also the tallest railroad bridge in the nation at the time, but by the time it was finished no ore cars ever crossed it as the mines in Silver City had played out. It did carry more sheep and cattle than any other line in the west. A lot of Idaho history surrounds this bridge.
