White River Railroad Bridge
Posted November 27, 2012, by Alex Wood (illinoiscentral8733 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Been wanting to get some pics of this one up. It was originally built for the Chicago & Eastern Illinois railroad, which was split in the early 70's between Missouri Pacific and Louisville & Nashville. L&N owned this section. It gained them access to Chicago from Evansville. L&N became CSX in the late 70's merger with Seaboard System and Chessie System to form CSX.

Will try to post some pics on this page when I go up that way again.
