Looking east down the old ROW through the old bridge. In the background is the Cargill rail yard that was built over the remains of the former UP/CNW/MStL tracks. Union Pacific formerly used these rails to deliver cars to Albia for interchange with the BNSF. However, Cargill built their own line south from the plant to the BNSF mainline in the early 2000s, in an effort to allow BNSF direct access to the plant and get better freight rates. This led to the abandonment and removal of the UP Eddyville to Albia segment.
