UP/C&EI Trestle over Kaskaskia River in Shelbyville, IL

(Update: I have published the pictures I took of the bridge.)
(Bridge Hunter, no Historic Bridges, Satellite, the shadows show the height of the towers.)

Big 4 bridge with the C&EI in the background. I remember in the late 80's kids used to go on it to drink and hang out. They said there was big gaps in it you could fall through. I went to the edge of it one time but looked too scary for me to try it. Wish I'd taken pics.

I have taken my own pictures and a video of a train crossing the bridge.
