From Facebook memories (only one without friends)

This is the west side of Wynoochee Lake at the Coho Campgrounds. Shoreline about 800 feet above sea level. The end of the Simpson Railroad was just beyond that ridge to the east. Elevation 3200 feet, 4800 feet further east on the other side of a valley where the train ran. Valley floor 1000 - 1100 feet above sea level.

Camp Grisdale, south of the Wynoochee Dam (built 1972), east of the river.

Has anyone here actually ridden on a train going over a bridge like that? It must be...uncomfortable.

Not in a very long time for these bridges
The High Steel Bridge was converted to vehicle traffic in 1964 when the railbed was replaced by a concrete deck.
The Vance Creek Bridge was decommissioned in the 1970s
