Well I was confused too. The Street View made me think I was looking north of the highway but actually it is looking south.

Oh, I didn't realise that you were referring to the pin. You are correct that the bridge is on the south side of 52 as the streetview shows. I have changed the pin coordinates.

Well maybe the marker(on the map) is on the wrong side of the road. I'm almost sure that the the rail road would have to be on the south side of US-52.

Somewhere in the vicinity east of the trailhead is the remains of an old road bridge, but I can't see it from the satellite.

Looks correct to me. It's apparently on a planned portion of the Whitewater Canal Trail (rail to trail), just west of the Yellow Bank trailhead. The trailhead parking can be seen in Google Streetview.

I am not sure that this bridge is correctly identified. It looks to be on the wrong side of US-52 as the railroad ran beside the canal which is on the other side of the highway closer to the river. This may be an older alingment of the highway.
