John Stell posted three photos with the comment: "Here are three slides looking east of the Spoon River Bridge at Seville. Notice the wood 4x4's driven under the rail in middle picture. The last photo shows the piers. And the nudists were waving. John Stell slides on 4-8-05."
Keokuk Junction Railway wrecked this bridge over Spoon River even though it had been inspected just a few months earlier. "Built 1890; collapsed Sept. 16, 2013; replaced with deck girder spans and reopened May 21, 2014." [Old Bridge Hunter]
"Built for the Missouri Pacific Colorado River crossing in Bay City, Texas; moved here in 2014" [New Bridge Hunter]
Four photos were posted on Facebook with the comment:
A train carrying corn syrup derailed just off of Route 95 on Seville Road, sending freight cars into the Spoon River yesterday 9-16-13. Here is an article link and a copy of their photos. http://www.cinewsnow.com/news/local/T-224005941.html. Here is another link about it. http://peoriastation.blogpeoria.com/2013/09/16/bridge-collapse-wrecks-train-near-seville/ [I see both links are now broke! :-( It seems I should ignore copyright considerations and copy the content so that it won't disappear. One of them mentioned that corn syrup was a pollutant as far as the fish was concerned. Some died.]
