Here is the impressive bridge in Morgan County on Google Streetview. Sadly, the railroad bridge isn't in the Streetview.

That is a totally different bridge I remember fondly. It was a girder type of bridge, but not as impressive as this one in Morgan County. This one in Morgan County was massive, painted yellow, and stood out geographically.

There's also an NBI listing in Noble county saying that there was a bridge at 39.820000, -81.671667

This is the NBI for the Haul Road bridge I had posted here earlier. Google Earth in 1994 shows there was this railroad bridge crossing where the roadway has now been moved to and the bridge in NBI just directly to the southeast. It is kind of hazy, but it does prove the evidence of my comment.
