In December of 2010 a pair of IC&E SD40-2s lead CP 277 west through Wisconsin Dells. It was bone chilling cold but worth it to see this!

[Evidently this lower deck used to carry a road. But the road has been removed and additional bracing has been added. The vertical columns in the middle are on just one side because one of the initial two tracks on the bridge has been removed. And diagonal bracing has been added at the two ends.]

Back in March of 2011 a SOO SD60 leads a ethanol train east through Wisconsin Dells, WI.

The bridge still has its tie bars and pin connections. [Bridge Hunter]
