I was told once that this was the Highest Wooden Bridge in Kansas: I don't know what to make of that. My understanding is that the Abilene & Smoky Valley RR used to run a "railbus" service over this section down to Woodbine with a school bus that had Hi-rail wheels on it but I think that has been discontinued now. Sadly the removal of the diamond crossing in Enterprise with the BNSF line (and the--for all practical purposes--impossibility of restoring said crossing) basically means the A&SVRR will likely never get east of Enterprise.
MOOOONNNNSSSTTTTEEERRRR tressle - parked on road to south, walked few hundred yards north to find this freaky thing, fenced off on both sides about 20 yds away, cattle meandering among the posts on other side of creek - absolutely gigantic abandoned beauty
Oh, yes, this bridge. I have driven past it, but could not see it due to the summer foliage. I understand that it is quite an impressive timber trestle.
