It does indeed Mr. Vance!
Anyone else think the satellite view looks like a deck truss?
Here's a point of historic clarification. Zeandale, Kansas is located on what was once the Rock Island Railroad (Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific or CRI&P) Clay Center or "High Line" secondary main line between McFarland and Belleville, Kansas. The line entered service in 1887 and was operated until 1980, when it was abandoned. The rails were sold for salvage and dismantled in 1984. The Deep Creek Bridge that's the subject of this entry was part of that Rock Island route. The Union Pacific line nearest to Zeandale runs roughly parallel to the old Rock Island, about a mile north, across the Kansas River, between Manhattan and Wamego.
