THEY'VE BEEN WORKING ON THE RAILROAD: All the live long day on Friday, May 5th, 2017. Work continues on the replacement of the iconic Ellison Creek steel trestle on the AT&SF (Now BNSF), Northeast of Media Il. This has been a favorite spot for rail photographers over the years. Will be sad to see it go. Some photos of the progress and equipment being used. Enjoy! JCC

THEY'VE BEEN WORKING ON THE RAILROAD, PART TWO! Work is continuing on the bridge for the replacement of the historic AT&SF Media Illinois, steel trestle over Ellison Creek. This is just East of Media, in Henderson County Il. The reinforced cast concrete piers are taking shape. Now on the BNSF Transcon this trestle has been the site of many great railroad photographs over the years. EnJoY!
