My latest project "Wonder of the Illinois Valley" is a historic look at th ICRR bridge at LaSalle. This disc contains never-before seen pictures of the 1898 rebuilding of the bridge and the 1933 addition of the span. There is video of trains passing over the bridge in 2010, yes the bridge is still being used by Buzzi Unicem today.
