UP Sherman Beach Bridge
Posted February 22, 2014, by Kurt Smith (1kurt1smith1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Tony, I see that the listing was updated to Sherman unincorporated St Louis County and you took out Wildwood which is correct. Thank you. However, when linking to the new updated version the link still says it is in Wildwood which is incorrect. Is there some way to fix the wording of the link to take out Wildwood? Thanks for your prompt attention in this matter.

Sherman Beach Railroad Bridge

That bridge is NOT located in Wildwood. It's in the unincorporated town of Sherman, Missouri. The "beach" is named after the town. Please correct this error. We residents of Sherman are glad to not be in Wildwood.

Thank you.
