Sabine River Bridge
Posted October 17, 2011, by Brad Smith (gaberdine [at] hotmail [dot] com)

It may have been a Rail Road Bridge. Perhaps part of the DARCO mine. Darco mined coal and manufactured Activated Carbon in Marshall. The mine is a lesser form and the plant (NORIT AMERICAS) are still in business. The Sabine River truss bridges from the thirties are still in place immediately adjacent to the existing flat bridges.
