Rock Island over Des Moines River in Eldon IA

Tim Shanahan shared Dan Tracy's posting
Rails pulled up over the Des Moine River at Eldon IA in March of 83.
This is on the former Rock Island Golden State Route.
I assume this picture was taken to catch the river at a high level. I'm guessing it was a steel girder bridge.

Eldon, IA, used to have two Rock Island routes through it.So it now has a farm service facility that has to use just trucks. Not only do they have to haul grain out, they have to haul fertilizer in.
Bing also has the river running high.
Judging from the shadows of the piers, Google caught it running a lot lower.
