Altamaha River Swing Bridge, Everett City

Abandoned by Seaboard Coast Line Railroad in the 1980s, the trestle/swing bridge seen here dates to the days of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad, and in the heyday of passenger trains, carried the Orange Blossom Special and other legendary passenger cars. It’s the most prominent landmark at the Altamaha River Park.

The bridge is also a popular landmark for boaters traveling down the Altamaha to the coast.

    At the price of scrap steel these days, the railroad would do well to remove this bridge.
