    Default Another cool book I found

    Found a book on railroad construction.

    https://archive.org/stream/railroadc...anrich#page/n7


    Quite a bit of it is on earthwork, but it does feature chapter on Culvert and bridge masonry:

    Plus a chapter on bridges and trestles with lots of drawings:
