Highline East Creek Bridge
Posted September 13, 2009, by Remick Bloss (madirea [at] cox [dot] net)

Is this bridge a part of the "old" line to Dixon, Mo? I have read about it, and one of my videos show remains of the roadbed that, at one time, crossed over the new line. Do you have any pictures of the bridge that crossed over the new line? Not only am I bulding an HO scale RR based on my favorite KC RRs, there is an O gauge RR in the plans. This one is the Rolla sub (Former Frisco) and I am interested in collecting as much information about the Frisco's Eastern Division( Rolla Sub) as I can. Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
