BNSF - Littlers Creek Bridge

Jeanne,

I made an entry for the stone arch at Farmington, Illinois. According to documents when the railroad was abandoned, the arch was built in 1860 and is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. The STB ordered the structure to be left in place, while the other bridges on the line were removed in 2019.
