Derby-Shelton Railroad Bridge, Shelton, Connecticut:

In 1888, railroads and trestles were laid on the Shelton side of the Housatonic River. The rail bridge to Derby was projected to cost $100,000. When it was complete, steam trains of the Shelton Railroad Company carried passengers and freight to and from New York. Nowadays, pedestrians are not supposed to walk across this railroad bridge, but many do anyway; it’s sort of a short cut to Derby.
