Re: Lower Cascade Bridge

Some further information, from Kraus "High Road to Promontory", p 308 - list of stations and milage. Cisco is listed as milepost 92 (calculated from Sacramento, not from San Francisco as was later the standard). At milepost 98, 6 miles about Cisco, is Mountain Mill, presumably today's Troy. Lower Cascade Bridge is listed as milepost 98.5, and Upper Cascade Bridge is listed as milepost 99. Again, that seems to confirm the drainages mentioned below. [See a] map showing the bridges and Troy.
