Osage County Places Quenemo railroad bridge stands test of time

Strength and longevity are exemplified by this BNSF truss bridge. Beautifully tucked away just east of Quenemo, this one erected in 1905 (updated in 1945) still serves its purpose: getting trains across the Marias des Cygnes River.

    To bad it’s such an openly known party/hangout place to so many kids. It’s coming up on a year ago that the life of my 18 year old son was lost on this very bridge, how about a story about what is or could be done to keep it from happening again? I ask this in hopes that no other parents/families have to feel the pain, loss, and constant nightmares that myself, Austin’s father and other family now cope with DAILY.
