It is a C.M. Clegg photo from the Mallory Hope Ferrell Collection.

According to the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad Historical Society publication, The Blue Ridge Stemwinder, the Hampton, TN covered thru-truss bridge was built in 1881 as on open bridge, then rebuilt and covered around 1892. The 118' bridge survived the abandonment of the line in 1950, but a few years later was torn down. Photos of the prototype can be seen in the Spring 1992 edition of the Stemwinder.

The model consists of laser-cut wood parts that build into a realistic, and very strong, bridge. The roof is removable for maintenance. Includes two stone walls for the abutments; rail and spikes are not included.
Approx. Size - 18 x 118'
