Random internet guy here--- I think the Barkshed bridge is WPA/CCC road bridge circa late 1930s, not MN&A. The MN&A in Stone County was to the Southwest and there was a stop at Arlburg. This is fresh to me because parts of the Ozark HIghlands Trail and the Buffalo River Trail are on old road beds, and we've hiked both sections recently. Really nice trails, and the Buffalo River Trail downstream from Gilbert leads to the piers of the MN&A bridge over the Buffalo.
