Walnut River Bridge

Just to avoid any possible confusion, these photographs were taken by another Robert. I have never photographed this bridge.

THAT'S a photo I'd like to see! I abhor spray-painted work by local artisans, but painting "LIONEL" on a railroad bridge at least shows a bit of imagination. Painting "I [heart] Jesicca" (yes, with the girl's name spelled incorrectly) or even worse nonsense, shows a complete lack of originality.

Back in the early 60s, someone climbed up on top of the RR bridge and painted 'LIONEL' on it. The highway bridge used to be known as the Lagondan bridge. Not a clue as to why. Our high school yearbook was also know as the Lagondan until 1970. Again no one remembers why.

This bridge is located immediately west of the US 77 Walnut River Bridge in Winfield, Kansas.
