Hopewell Road Railroad Bridge

It is original White River Railway, then Missouri Pacific, then Union Pacific, and now Missouri & Northern Arkansas. Don't get this line confused with the abandoned line of the nearby Missouri & North Arkansas.

Union Pacific Line, NOT M&NA Line.

Trail of the old M&NA, its all but vanished except a short section around Eureka Springs AR for tourists.
