One of a Kind. With the town of Victorville in the rearview mirrors, BNSF's Southern California Division Christmas Train joins Route 66 again east of town as it prepares to make the turn toward Oro Grande. The "Mother Road," as it is affectionately called, on its way out of town traverses this 1932-built, steel bridge that spans the Mojave River. Besides this 88-year-old bridge not looking bad for its age, this structure is particularly unique to Route 66 as being the only bridge that Route 66 crosses in California. In addition to this, the uniqueness continues as compared to other ordinary steel truss bridges, this structure crosses the river at an angle - so all the steel girders intersect at odd angles.
