C.R.I. & P. Trestle Estherville, Iowa

Where there is a depot and a river there must be a trestle or bridge. This bridge crosses the West Fork of the Des Moines River and is located north of Central Avenue and can be seen from the Central Avenue Bridge. To the best of our knowledge this trestle is still in use, please correct us if this is wrong.

This second card was sent to us by a friend of this site and although the scan is not as large as we'd like it the view of the train crossing the bridge makes it well worth displaying here.

If you would like a full size scan of this card for your personal use please send e-mail and we will make it available to you. We do not honor requests for scans to be used in commercial ventures.
