Comment for Dylan's photo #9. Other bridge you noticing formed a Y to link over to the Milwaukee Rd's downtown Ottumwa branch. The missing bridge collapsed in the 30s or 40s under the weight of a steam locomotive, possibly during a flood. There is a picture of the bridge in Lembergers' Railroads of SE Iowa book.
