Midland Valley - Myers Creek Trestle
Posted April 19, 2018, by Tannie Olsen (tannieolsen [at] gmail [dot] com)

I notice that you don't have a picture of the Midland Valley Trestle over Myers Creek. I have attached a color photograph of the bridge. I expect the photo to be credited to the Tannie Olsen photo collection and you do have my permission to post it as part of your website. If you have any questions, I would be more than happy to answer them.
