KCS 4219 crosses a bridge over BN's Gooseneck.



Here is the only image I was ever able to make of this bridge in use. Built by Kansas City Southern Lines to access Kansas City's West Bottoms district, the bridge now resides at the north end of KC Union Station for use as a pedestrian walkway. See photo (https://trainspo.com/photo/73828/?list=class) for a view of its current location. KCS financed every aspect of its reassignment, including removal from the above location, restoration and painting and finally placement upon new piers constructed for the project in 2006.
