BNSF RR Bridge
Posted September 2, 2009, by Matthew Siegmann (MatthewSiegmann [at] yahoo [dot] com)

This bridge isn't actually the BNSF RR Bridge, it actually crosses further southwest than the location shows on the map crossing over what used to be another railroad line or street car line (there was a major line between Carthage and Carterville).
