The bridge in the comments. Is a different bridge

Actually Gene. That was a false statement from the oldtimer. , the bridge was moved. And raised when the lake become a lake. I think they moved it in 1964. They actually moved it about 1/4 mile north. Or upriver from where it was. There is an island on south side of the bridge. It was just on the south end of that. Alot of people, think the bridge was up river where the old RR bridge embuttments are. But it wasnt.

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.
