Map 

Description 

"What's Here" shows this as CPRS Trenton sub although the rails and bridges are gone.

Although the culvert is dated 1915, a 1914 map shows "Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul RR" [sic] here. This line moved to an alignment to the north in 1930 based on the date on the new bridge. By 1942 the topo shows the original alignment as a spur from the new alignment northeast of town to (coal?) mines on the SW edge of town.
