Now there's a choice image if I ever saw one. Very nice!

It's no zoom pan, Mitch, but it's the only friggin' picture of this bridge on the entire site--which is hard to believe.

It is too bad that the former GWWR doesn't host more trains. This bridge is always nice for photos. Nice job.

The best looking train on the US rails today, bar none. Way to go KCS.

Zach... This is a wonderful shot of the Glasgow bridge and the train isn't too shabby, either! Not only is this the first image of this awesome bridge in the database, it's also the first image from Glasgow, Missouri! I remember hearing about the flood damage to the Glasgow bridge since I wasn't very far away helping to rebuild the NS "up north" on the former Wabash Moberly-Kansas City mainline. Back then, the GWWR was broke and I seem to recall it was out of service for quite awhile. I'm not 100% sure about this, but I also seem to recall the GWWR was detouring their trains over the former Wabash out of KC to Moberly and then south (timetable east) to Clark, MO, where they gained access to home rails. Thanks for sharing this gem with us and I'm going to nominate it for a PCA!

Such a great backdrop for the "Belle"!! PCA for me as well!

Beautiful train (I don't think it equals the SP Daylight, though). The theme song for that bridge must be "Rust Never Sleeps"!
