Re: Lower Cascade Bridge

Checking a 1953 copy of "Southern Pacific circular 4, List of Officers, Agencies, Stations, Etc." I find Cisco listed as milepost 180, and Troy listed as milepost 186. Turning to Maptech which has digital parts of topo maps, I entered Cisco, California, and then followed the railroad line East. Just past Troy (maybe a mile) were the two drainages mentioned, Cascade Lake and Kidd Lake, with bridges shown. Sounds consistant with Wendell's locating them 7 miles above Cisco. Note the maps can be enlarged or reduced in scale. Also they can be right-clicked and saved as a jpeg.
