This is where the west end of the upstream truss was bedded. Note that here, there was a small bedding timber. The treatment here is the same as for the downstream truss-end, the chord was cut off and the end-post mounted on the abutment cap.

The downstream truss is laid atop the upstream truss for repairs. This truss seems to be in somewhat better condition than its twin.
