No, this bridge was used exclusively by vehicles. I know there is a railroad truss bridge over the Neosho River immediately northeast of Emporia. It is currently being used by the BNSF Railroad:
This is a road bridge.
Is this the bridge that the KATY train crossed? I'm trying to locate information about the bridge used by the Missouri-Kansas-Texas outside of Emporia.
My wife and I visited this site over the weekend. I believe this bridge was also referred to as the Patty Mill bridge. The bridge is gone with only the concrete abutment on the west edge and two old pylons on the east. I would say the bridge has been gone many years.
