CGW Bridge over Mississippi in St. Paul, MN
(Bridge Hunter, Historic Bridges, John Weeks III, 3D Satellite)
I did not know that CGW went to St. Paul until I saw this posting. Furthermore, this is a CGW route that C&NW did not tear up when it bought CGW because UP now owns it. The "rrCGW" label violates my naming convention because I can't find a CGW route into St. Paul in my 1928 RR Atlas. But since this was posted in a CGW Facebook group and since Bridge Hunter lists CGW as the first owner and Historic Bridges still titles it as a CGW bridge, I'll go with the rrCGW label.
