Rock Island over Big Creek

Map 

Description 

A while back I had observed the UP working in an area south of Greenwood, looking on Google Earth I discovered that the old Rock Island 's bridge had been removed. (Note: current Google Earth map, the bridge is removed, however, the close up-view on this view the bridge is still there.)
