Misc. photos

SB in St. Louis.

Also SB in St. Louis, on Kingshighway Blvd. under the Route of the Eagles, used by Missouri Pacific from 1948 into the 1960s to advertise their new logo and train name. That was painted over the Route of the Sunshine Special, which was the name of the service out of St. Louis prior to then.

Some NB closeups of the same bridge.

Sticking with railroads, this looks back northwest at one that parallels US 62, east of Sikeston where US 60, 61, and 62 meet.

All remaining photos are courtesy Jeremy Lance.

Two photos of the Buechter Bridge, a wooden swinging bridge over Tavern Creek southwest of St. Anthony. Due to a partial deck collapse, the bridge on the eponymous road has been closed to traffic, and judging by its condition, it would be better off replaced.

The Warsaw Bridge, a wood-decked suspension bridge.

And now a few narrow 3-digit US shields, at their routes' ends. US 400 is a bastard route - there is no parent US 100 (or, heavens, a US 0), and it was slapped over a few existing US routes in the name of continuity. What, being the child of US 66 isn't good enough?

A shot of a lettered (secondary) route, the same way Wisconsin does 'em.

Saving the best for last, this secondary route shield is at least 30 if not 40 years old.
