ISRY - 645th Avenue Overpass

Photos 

Wabash Railroad Bridge #2786V.25

This bridge, located north of Moravia, Iowa is essentially identical to the Wabash bridge over IA Hwy. 202, south of Moulton, Iowa. That bridge was demolished in the 1990's after the former Wabash/Norfolk Southern line was pulled up.
