NS/Wabash Bridge over Lake Decatur

(Bridge Hunter, no Historic Bridges)

[The piers are the remnants of an Illinois Terminal interurban route.]
One of the largest reinforced concrete structures in the world when it was completed in December 1907. (Hearald&Review)

Kirk Reynold posted five pictures of the Monticello Railway Museum's train going to Decatur, IL to be used by Norfolk Southern as a Santa Clause Train.

Here we see a westbound train on the former Wabash crossing over Lake Decatur just east of that town in central Illinois. The piers one can see behind the Wabash bridge once carried the tracks of the Illinois Terminal Railroad. Two photographs by Richard Koenig; taken December 30th 2017.
[I saw just this one photo.]

Richard Koenig posted a March 22, 2018, westbound auto train on the bridge.
