I'm not sure whether this bridge is actually on the Wabash river as Carmi is closer to the Little Wabash River than the Wabash River proper. The railroad passes over both rivers in the area but the bridge over the Wabash is closer to the small community at Maunie, Illinois, just southwest of the Harmonie State Park in Indiana.
