Atchison Topeka and Santa Fe bridge
Posted January 10, 2009, by Tom Sevart (n2uhc [at] yahoo [dot] com)

This is a picture I took of the bridge in the mid to late 80's before the railroad tracks were removed. I used to visit this bridge and the creek it spanned a lot as a teenager. The bridge has many names & initials carved into the top stones, I don't know if this was done by the builders of the bridge or local townspeople throughout the years this bridge has stood.
