I heard the same rumors about abandonment north of Stacyville, IA. Would be cool to (legally) get at that truss near Lyle..
The bridge is now in very poor condition. I live near Glenville and I believe this line from the junction with the UP spine line at Glenville to Lyle, MN will be abandoned. I have seen no trains on this line for a few years, and the ties are in very poor condition. It's sad I really wish there was more train acion other than the plain old UP trains 14 times a day.
