Closer view of the truss showing the various components. The vertical struts are made of C channels with lacing bars riveted on. As can be seen, the diagonal eye bars are in pairs with the counter tie rods between them. The turnbuckles are easily seen in this view. The top has horizontal struts bolted to the tops of the trusses, with diagonal sway braces. Note that these are also adjustable by means of turnbuckles.
