Loc: Round Rock, Texas, USA
This trestle is a few miles west of Antonito.
Mr. Ferguson did something bad (don't know what).
The locals took a locomotive and Mr. Ferguson to the trestle (location high enough to hang someone) and hung him. I don't know what year this happened.
Also, this location was in the 1988 Willie Nelson movie, "Where The Hell's That Gold".
The movie plan was to blowup the trestle. The pyrotectics (?) used accidentally burned the trestle down.
The Railroad had to build a temporary crossing while the burnt one was replaced.
Nice, sharp photo and interesting story!
Nice shot and an interesting narrative.
Great photo of an incredible train to ride!
