While I do not ave a picture of the bridge it's self, I do have a few (I think) of trains going under it. I loved standing on this bridge when a train rumbled under. I have not been down that way for years, and only discovered that had been replaced by looking on Google Street View.

I'd forgotten about this one. Good addition to the history of this route. Since this section of track was in place prior to the 1929 realignment in Jackson County, I wonder if the build date was different.
