The train trestle was one of the most distinguishable structures in all of Black Hawk. Although passenger transport by train started to decline in the early 1900's with the invention of the automobile, the trestle remained standing until 1970's, when it was demolished for lumber.
During the 2007-'08 renovation of the Rohling Inn and expansion of the Fitzgeralds Casino, remnants of the trestle footings and support columns were uncovered, including the display piece below.
