The Baishatuo Yangtze River Railway Bridge is a truss bridge across the Yangtze River between the Jiangjin District and the Dadukou District of Chongqing, China.[1]

The bridge carries two tracks of the Chongqing-Guiyang Railway. Completed in 1960, the bridge was the first bridge over the Yangzte River in Chongqing and only the second bridge along the main stretch of the river between Yibin and the river mouth in Shanghai.[citation needed] Only the Wuhan Yangtze River Bridge, completed in 1957, pre-dates the Baishatuo Railway Bridge. There are now over 50 bridges which cross the river downstream of the Baishatuo Railway Bridge.
