O&M - Hogan Creek Bridge

Photos 

1874 image labeled Hogan River

Likely not the Hogan creek crossing in Aurora, IN. Not sure if current RR alignment is the same as in the 1870s

O & M Railway Bridge over the Hogan River
Posted September 28, 2020, by Ed Hollowell (erhollowell [at] aol [dot] com)

Sometime in the past the criteria for "River" was defined as 100 miles long. At that time many 'rivers' became creeks and that may be the case here.

Thanks Tony!

Took a short break from posting CBWs. Tonight was vertical endpost night :^)

Found the location of three of the O&M's Post through trusses and posted a new image of a B&O Fink in WV.

Regards,

Very cool find!

It is indeed Hogan Creek, which like nearby Laughery Creek are rather sizable streams before their confluence with the Ohio River.
