Bridges #3, 4, 5 and 6
Superimposed image showing where bridge #3 and #4 used to lay along the line. These structures were at mile post 12.5 where the tracks crossed Palisades Rd. Picture of a train crossing bridge #3 just before it will cross Palisades Rd heading north up Moses Coulee.
Bridges #5 and #6 were located about mile post 14. Palisades Siding was at mile post 15.5. You can tell how much the creek has changed course from when the drawings were made over 100 years ago. The creek used to meander east under Palisades Rd and then cross back west again. Now the creek only goes on the west side of the road. Here is a train passing over bridge #6 for the last time in 1985.
