On the final day of shooting I decided to do a Google search for ruins in Fairfax near my home. To my surprise, I found there was an old trolley bridge a few miles away in an obscure location that you have to know about to find. Thanks to the BeyondDC blog (http://beyonddc.com/log/?p=3230) I was provided with a map pin location. Although accessible from the back parking lot of the Route 29 Diner, it was not visible from the parking lot. Without the map you would never know it was there.

I also did not know that there had been a trolley line that connected Fairfax with Washington, DC from approximately 1905 to 1932. An extensive history is available on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Virginia_trolleys)
