Believe this is the ex-Frisco railroad lift span across the Arkansas. Had a little technical difficulty today.

I think that's putting it mildly.

Isn't that the bridge that A&M operates over via trackage rights on the UP? Bad karma, getting EMDs...;)

That's definitely a bad day at the office. Is there much river traffic that will be putting pressure on them as they try to get the span properly hung again?

I must confess total ignorance about the location.

Well, if you aim to get a running start into a massive block of reinforced concrete, be my guest.
