Nice video, thanks for posting.  For us local fans, this was known as "Yellowbank Curve" about MP251.9.  The Des Moines River Bridge is
to the right in this photo and MP252 is about twenty feet out on it.  You can see in the video that the foliage is taking this area over again.  
Santa Fe bulldozed the side of a hill to fill in the bridge over Rock Island's abandoned K&D line in the late 80's.  It was a great place to go
shoot.  However, it was dangerous to reach because it required a walk along the right-of-way which went over a high fill with no place to
go if a train came along.  I haven't been there in some twenty yeas now, but did enjoy my times there.  I probably should post some of the
shots I got there someday.  Again, thanks for posting.
