Description 

A couple local people suggested this bridge. They call it the Graffiti bridge. I tried to find as much information as I could about it using Google but I really did not have much luck. I believe the bridge is still in use however I never observed a train go by on it. The bridge is located at 11000 Rd and X-Ray Rd outside of Oswego, KS. You could see years and years of different graffiti on the bridge and it made for some awesome photos!

Courtney, Nice Shots thanks for sharing! Looks like another cool bridge where 6th Street Crosses Neosho river. BE CAREFULL on live Railroads!
