Union Pacific Railroad Bridge
Posted August 26, 2012, by Max

Part of the Lawrence to Leavenworth, KS line of the Union Pacific, abandoned sometime in the early 80's. Going off what I can see on Google maps, the tracks are intact from the switch on the main line (about 1/2 mi south), all the way to the north side the bridge.
