Without getting in the middle of an argument, perhaps TMP is referring to the lack of maitainence on the LIRR bridges. While it's true the bridges were well built (they have lasted as long as they have), they have not had the same maintainence that in-service bridges get. While it's also true they haven't had the stresses of use, I'd think that such things as jammed up trains, tree roots growing through the structures, and lack of attention outweigh the lack of use.

No doubt BYC maintains the structures sufficiently to keep them from falling down, that doesn't mean they're in condition for use. I'm sure the LI Motor Parkway structures in Queens couldn't be safely used for their original pupose either, anymore.
