CSX - Red River Trestle
Posted November 1, 2018, by Linda Radtke (lindaraeradtke1 [at] gmail [dot] com )

I just wanted to know if this is the trestle that can be seen from a hill on Old Log Lick Rd above the Indian Old Fields. When I was pre-school age back in 1954, my family lived on that hill in a house/property called Swopes Place. From the porch and driveway you could see a tall trestle. I know it was around Red River. Is there more than one near there? Thank you very much. Linda Radtke
