Idaho railroad trestle carried trains for 80 years
The picture above shows one of many trestles built in 1908 to cross Lawyer’s Canyon and Camas Prairie gorges. This trestle was 1,500 feet long and 296 feet high. The trestles were mostly wood with a metal structure.
The trestles were used by Camas Prairie Railroad, a joint venture of Union and Northern Pacific railroads, for 80 years.
