Lockman Railroad Viaduct
Posted March 21, 2012, by Robert F. Schramm (altonrailroader1 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

This location is where the former Illinois Terminal Railroad line from Troy Jct. southward to the St. Ellen Mine west of

O'Fallon crossed over the former Pennsylvania RR and was thus called PAIT.

There was an interchange track located to the south of this bridge where thousands of tons of Madison County coal from the mines at Edwardsville, Troy and O'Fallon were handed off from the ITC to the PRR for movement eastward.
