Southern Pacific freight train on truss bridge at Anacacho, TX

Southern Pacific Extra 8874 East is crossing the truss bridge just east of Anacacho, TX on December 5, 1977. Anacacho is eight miles east of Spofford and the branch line down to Eagle Pass and Mexico. It is amazing the amount of weight these bridges have to support. Each of those locomotives weighs between 205 and 210 tons. The bridge spans the East Fork of Elm Creek. Disk 101
