On the left, John, doing what he does....'driving' the train. On the right, a view from train (from the old bridge) overlooking the construction of the new high bridge over the Des Moines River near Boone, Iowa.
There is an article about the bridge, which will be 2550 ft. long and 195 ft. high here with other pictures. The bridge is expected to be done in December, 2008. The old bridge was built in 1911.
