Glen Carbon Electric Line Trestle
Posted March 1, 2020, by R. G. (Gilpin123 [at] aol [dot] com)

I expect that the electric railroad was the East St. Louis and Interurban Railway Company and the railroad below was the Illinois Central.

The former interurban is now IL 59, and the IC line is now the Glen Carbon Heritage Bike Trail.
