This is the Samson of the Cimarron, a 1,269 foot railroad bridge that spans the Cimarron River, located 13 miles north of Liberal, Kansas. It was built in 1939, replacing 3.5 miles of curves and areas of frequent flooding, by raising the tracks 113 feet above the riverbed. This bridge was considered an engineering marvel of its day.
