Hi, Everyone,

It’s Photo Friday again!  I have two photos taken of the construction of a railroad trestle. The location is unidentified beyond the assumption that it is in Kansas.  These are interesting photos in many respects.  The small crew and lack of heavy equipment impresses me.  I’m not sure who may have been braver, the two men standing atop the trestle, or the first engineer who drove a train over the structure.
