Railroad Crossing Trestle

This is a picture of the railroad crossing that used to be located on the A. H. Clement Road. The large sandstone rocks, taken from the rock quarry in the article below, were used to help build up the banks to hold the track.

The crossing was taken out in 1999-2000 right after the rail road tracks were taken up in 1999.

Crittenden County has one rail road trestle left, it is located at what we called Winlow Park on Hwy. 60 East about 5 miles from Marion. I wonder if the people that owned the land didn't want it taken down and that it why is was saved from destruction.
