Pennsy Bridge over Little Embarras River west of Oakland, IL:

Here is a picture that I have been wanting to share here. This was taken in Jan. 2005 on the way home from Terre Haute, IN. This is the former Pennsylvania RR bridge crossing the Little Embarras River west of Oakland, IL.
Kam Miller I got to see a Penn Central train on it, once. No camera, either. (sigh)
From Bridge Hunter I learned that the route using this bridge was the Terre Haute & Peoria Railroad, which was eventually acquired by the Pennsy. It is now abandoned.
