Aban/CR/NYC/Big Four Bridge over Kankakee River near Schneider, IN

(no Bridge Hunter?, Satellite)
20150510 1134
Considering how long this route has been abandoned south of Schneider, I'm surprised the steel has not been salvaged. The satellite image shows that even the rails are still present. I made a point of taking its picture because I knew the river was running high. I need to make another trip by it to see if I can catch a low-water image. Notice all of the flotsam jammed up against the bents of the wood trestle.

Joe M McMillan caught the river even higher and with a northbound Milwaukee Road train on May 22, 1983.
