Still Standing

January 28, 2012. St. Louis, Missouri.

An old, unused railroad signal still stands on the former Illinois Terminal/Traction System (ITS) bridge in North St. Louis. The bridge originally carried electric interurban passenger trains from the McKinley Bridge to the ITS' train station in downtown St. Louis. Back in the early to mid-2000s, the bridge was used to bring in news print by boxcar for delivery to the Post Dispatch, St. Louis' biggest daily newspaper.
