Since the original source (And any way of contacting the person who gave the location) is locked, I've sent in a deletion request.

The location marker for this bridge is quite a ways off. Wherever this bridge was actually located, there weren't any railroad tracks at this particular location, and the closest railroad is actually an old CB&Q line.
