Remarks & Notes 
CSX trains approach the southern end of Benning Yard over the Anacostia River on what is arguably the smallest vertical lift bridge. Although this part of the 9-mile-long Potomac tributary is rarely navigated by anything larger than an outboard skiff, CSX still maintains the bridge because the U.S. Coast Guard still considers the Anacostia to be a navigable waterway. If you're considering taking your yacht on a cruise up the Mighty Anacostia, you'll need to give 48 hours notice to get the bridge raised.
