Note the Adrian gravel pit along the center right side.

Something I've always been curious on is how the NP and GN interchange actually was in Adrian. This map, shows the NP coming down off the hill and tying into the GN on the curve east of Adrian but didn't the NP come all the way down and across Crab Creek on their own bridge underneath their high bridge?

The NP had 2 bridges over Crab Creek. The big one that crossed over the creek and the GN, whose approaches you can still see today. Just east of it, there was another bridge, much smaller, that did come down the hill and connected into the GN siding on the curve east of the big bridge.

should drop you right into where the smaller bridge over Crab Creek was, and you can see where the line met the GN siding. The big bridge is just a bit southwest of this spot.

Thanks so much! That finally cleared it up for me!
