    OK, that's creative. Sort of rustic New England meets Steam Punk.

      that was what I envisioned.

      I am often amazed that people think they can get competent (and free) advice from more or less random and anonymous people on the Internet than by paying people who are actually competent to give such advice.

      That the OP seems to think that "grounding" these structures will somehow provide some kind of protection from lightning suggests he badly needs competent advice on the subject.

        I imagine that perhaps most of the bridge is structurally unsound, or gone, but they want to span still-existing piers or abutments with shipping containers. OP did specify a 'train trestle'. Unless the original bridge is gone and the reason is that it got hit by lightning, this thread is much ado about nothing much, IMHO.

          a lot of old train right of ways that are no longer used by railroads are being turned into trails. maybe someone thinks this is a cheap way to make the trestle safe for bike and foot traffic.
