Bloomington Southern RR Clear Creek Bridge
Posted October 16, 2019, by Sam Plew (slodplew [at] hotmail [dot] com)

This is the Monon bridge, not the parallel Bloomington Southern/IC bridge. All IC bridges on this route were wooden trestles. Nearly all Monon bridges were steel girder on stone piers.
