All wood railroad trestle originally built by the Arkansas Southwestern & Indian Territory Railroad in 1896. This part of the railroad was later known as the "Delight Division" when it was operated by the Missouri Pacific Railroad. Trestle located next to large gravel pit that was used by the railroad. This trestle is located a short distance west of Antoine and can easily be seen looking south off Arkansas 26.
