In looking through and scanning some of the old pictures, I found this postcard showing a Santa Fe train after having crossed into Iowa over the Santa Swing Bridge heading for the depot at Ft. Madison.
The back of the card.
This picture shows a train crossing on the underside of the bridge. And above is where the autos crossed, passing by the toll booth which a few years ago cost $1.00 for autos entering Illinois and no charge for those heading into Iowa. The swing section of the bridge is 525 feet long, one of the longest in the world. If you go to http://www.johnweeks.com/river_mississippi/pagesB/umissB11.html you can read more about the bridge and also see more pictures. Happy PFF, everyone, and thanks to Beth of http://thebestheartsarecrunchy.blogspot.com/ for hosting. (Click to enlarge)
