Route V Bridge
Posted May 29, 2010, by Remick Bloss (madirea [at] cox [dot] net)

My parents,little sister and I lived just down the street from this bridge on Jackson street during the late 60s. The railroad that used to pass under Rt V. was the Milwaukee Road (one of several railroads that I am interested in modeling). Several years ago, I purchased 2 Rix Products Rural Wooden Overpasses and created a bridge that will span my double-track mainline, running through the east side of Chillicothe, Mo. This is just one of the towns( it is also my birthplace )on my HO scale Kansas City, Ottumwa, and Western. Not only are the bridges in the vicinity interesting; the town square is screamin' to be modeled!
