Old GN Bridge
Title:  Old GN Bridge
Description:  Here's remains of a old Great Northern Bridge outside St. Cloud. This bridge used to cross the Elk River. This is also the old GN line that went from St. Cloud to Brook Park. The tracks are gone and most is a trail, this line was going to be owned by the SCXY, but the tracks were too unstable and the line was closed and the tracks ripped up. If anyone has any info on this line and what happened to this bridge, please pass it on to me
