Trinidad Trestle Location

In this view, taken from the sand pit area next to SR 28 outside of Trinidad, you can see the current former Great Northern mainline currently in use by the BNSF. Between the tracks and the highway fill you can see the stairstep pattern for the original Great Northern mainline alignment through the area. This was replaced in 1909 by the current mainline. You can see parts of the old line in the distance.
