When it was completed in 1875, the Frankenstein Trestle (no, it was not named after Mary Shelley's monster!) in New Hampshire's Crawford Notch was considered an engineering marvel. Then part of Maine Central Railroad's famed "Mountain Division Line," it has thankfully been reinforced several times and still makes passengers on our modern-day "Notch Train" gasp with wonder! (From the photo collection of Dwight Smith.)
