Abandoned LWV - Black River Bridge
Posted April 10, 2017, by Jack A. Siffert (jasiffert [at] gmail [dot] com)

Bridge was in use as late as 1979 or 1981 depending on who you listen to. I saw a train west of it in 1979. The only way to use the track west of it was to go over it. Line was out way past where the train I saw was.
