Chariton Iowa bridge

This area is the open area between the tracks on the bridge. Note the abandoned track on the left. Weeds and shrubs are well established. I thank the BNSF maintenance crew for their support while I took these pictures. These were taken early in 2001. A few months later and this probably wouldn't have been possible.

      Gimme some help here. I spent 90 minutes on google satellite...from Lucas (west) to Russel (east) on the fully double-tracked BNSF...and I can't find any bridges like that...separated right of way.
      I went north and south on UP, Williamson to the south county line.
      Did BNSF re-double-track the line after the photo, and/or did the bridge get rebuilt?
      From the looks of these and the whole series on the old Atlas Forum, I would imagine it was replaced.
      Thanks.
