    Does anyone know where I might get a look at a Frisco List of Steel Bridges printed prior to 1954? The bridge I am interested in is bridge B-442.8 over Cherokee Creek, Central Division, Mansfield Branch (Little Rock & Texas). Later steel bridge lists show this as a 4 section, 100' bridge which dates to 1954 (53' 5 1/2" main span). In 1918 (ICC Valuation) it seems to have been a 189' bridge (with a 100' steel truss span). I'm hoping to locate information on what the other 89' of the bridge consisted of. Any help appreciated.

    John- I have a Mansfield Branch Track chart marked "Frisco Lines " that I believe corresponds to the 1938-1947 time frame. I am having a problem with the scan. Please let me have your mailing address.

    Tom, thank you very much for the chart copy. The information is much appreciated. In my opinion the time frame for the chart is much earlier than your estimate. I base this on the large number of side tracks shown on the chart which were removed between 1915 and 1926. I would "guess" its date as between 1910 and 1916. AGAIN, THANKS
