I think that it is quite common. I'm sure that most railroads built in mountains have bridges with grades. Several that come to mind are the Lobato trestle on the Cumbres and Toltec. That is a long grade up to the summit and I doubt very much that they would level it out for a bridge. The South Ramp of the Gottard in Switzerland has many bridges and pictures in books seem to show a slope to them. I also think that the cog railroad that connects the RhB and SBB at Andermatt, Switzerland has some bridges with relatively steep grades.
