Trussel

A bridge anywhere along a railway track

Informant: Elaine Peddle, Hodge’s Cove – her father , William Peddle and her aunt Olivia Drover used this term.

I always understood trussel to be a bridge over a railway track for people to go over as part of the road so they wouldn’t have to cross the track itself. This is my own idea and probably I’m wrong.
