Aban/NS/Southern over Kentucky River west of Versailles, KY

(Bridge HunterHistoric Bridges, Satellite)

"Built 1889 [by Louisville Southern Railway], closed to traffic in November 1985." [BridgeHunter], p51

Tony Hall posted four pictures with the comment: "Youngs's high bridge near Versailles Kentucky."



Tony Hall   Bluegrass Scenic Railroad ends at the bridge. A company out of Louisville bought it and does bungee jumping from it.

I wonder what they charge to skip the jumping and just walk across the bridge. Whoops, they don't even sell tickets; they run it as a private club. [Kentucky]

Studying a Norfolk Southern Map, RJCC (R. J. Corman/Central Kentucky Lines) connects Versailles to NS at Lexington, KY. (The map is 75 million bytes, and it will test the performance of your .pdf reader and computer.)
