We, at the C&NW archives, really like this photo of the Turtle Creek bridge just south of the little community of Tiffany, Wisconsin on the line from Janesville to Harvard, Illinois. We are on the downstream side of the bridge (anti ice flow buttresses on the other side) so we are looking to the northeast and the locomotive is pulling its consist inbound toward Harvard. Writing on the back dates the C&NW company publicity photo to "about 1931." The bridge and the track are still in use.
