CSX - Indiantown Bridge
Posted February 20, 2017, by Geraldine McNatt (Szuch) (jszuchj09 [at] gmail [dot] com)

This may have been the bridge where my father was a bridge tender for three years ending in 1948 when he was killed. We lived in a little house by the railroad track. Does anyone know my father, Charlie N McNatt? He was married to Christine Williams from Okeechobee, Florida.

I use to live next to this bridge & would walk across the crossties at age 3. Mr. Clement lived across the track & was the bridge tender.
