    Ballinger, Texas
    Former Railroad Bridge Over Elm Creek

    "My research of the old bridge pilings discovered that they were for a former railroad track over the Elm Creek just north of Ballinger. The CD Map I use shows this rail line but even Google shows no trace left of it. No idea as to how long ago it was removed." - Barclay Gibson
