Pryor Creek RR Bridge
Posted September 19, 2017, by Mark Brown (markwbrown66 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Before someone comments about the dangers of kids being on this RR bridge, this bridge is a spur line, that use to go over to a near by plant thats been shut down for over 30 years, only use this bridge gets now is backed up traffic as they add some cars. So not much chance of getting caught on the bridge.
