Abandoned BNSF - Bull Creek Bridge
Posted July 13, 2018, by Max

This may be the most recent sections of abandoned trackage in the country. Itís only been out of service since 2012-13ish, when the new intermodal facility was constructed to the north. Previously BNSF had a Main 1 & Main 2 title for the line, being they split off prior to then.
