Furthermore, that steel is supposed to be encased in the concrete. If the roots have compromised the concrete, which they undoubtedly have, as if there's even one tree on a trestle, the roots are where they shouldn't be, and we are talking about hundreds, the concrete is no longer protecting the steel allowing water to get in. Water deteriorates steel also. It's not immune from the elements. Furthermore, there's been no painting, or other maintenance done to the exposed steel on the trestles either, in over 50 years. Another recipe for deterioration.
