The image is from the south side of US 24, South of Ellisville along a former ROW and north of the NS St Louis Detroit Mainline, the pictures are taken across from each other. What is this former ROW ? and the road you are on is Homestead. If memory serves me there is a Oley's Pizza on the corner of 24 and Homestead, The 1st and only Pizza the 2 slices and you are FULL. 10# is the weight of a large pizza !

ROW is the interurban to Huntington. Substation is on Homestead.

Noticed two or three miles of the ROW is accessible if not exactly public but a couple of washouts keep you from going through. There are three bridges, one about 1/8 mile west of Engle might be visible from the road, One as the ROW approaches Redding and one 3/4 mile east of the substation do not seem to be visible from public places but the one east of Homestead might be from NS. Good job and thanks for playing.

Right, the ROW is actually between the two lanes and on the ROW back to a couple ball diamonds/park. That would be considered publicly accessible.What I was referring to was further out where AEP and farmers use bridges that can not be seen from a public places. They are accessible from Homestead, Engle and Amber roads but only by going on private property. These bridges may not be known about or documented because they are on private property/AEP ROW and would require land owner permission to go to photograph or just to determine if they are original Interurban or replacements. Some or many? groups restrict submissions to those that can be documented from a public place. These may be originals and worthy of documentation or at lease verifying as not replacement, but the only way to do so is with the property owners permission (or AEPs). I mentioned them only because some may not know of the existence of them and they can be seen through aerial or satellite imagery. Of course there is the chance that someone knows one or more of these property owner a could get permission to check them out. Otherwise it might be an imposition to ask for access from the property owner because of what for us is only a hobby. The land owner may not appreciate that imposition by hobbyists.
