Railroad bridge originally built for the Gurdon & Fort Smith Railroad in 1907. Along with this pony was also a pass-through truss on the southeast side of the current pony bridge. It was taken out years later, just leaving the pony bridge. The G.&F.S. was later taken over by the Missouri Paciific Railroad. Other names have also ran this road with the last being the Caddo Valley Railroad who in 2011 filed for bankruptcy. Railroad soon to fade into Arkansas history.
Note: Putting in old photograph of both bridges soon.
Glenwood Railroad Trestle - I first visited this bridge in Nov '07 and again on several occasions. The line is still active, but I walked across in both directions without any problems. Seems high especially walking on the pony truss with large gaps between ties. The webbed girders are substantial in size and length. I also walked around underneath. There is a AR Fish & Game access park on the Caddo River within 50 yards of the bridge. With easy access there is plenty of graffiti. I noticed there were no photos posted for it, and it was recently listed.
