BNSF/Santa Fe Trestle over Ellison Creek east of Media, IL

(Bridge Hunter)

Will Pagel's posting is what made be aware of this trestle.

You can tell by the greenery along the track that this little creek had dug quite a flood plain to the east. The embankment is rather long. Given the road goes along and under the trestle, this one is more accessible than usual. I wish I knew about the trestle when my daughter was living in Macomb.

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
