 Overview
 Description
The house and garage are wood and brick. There seems to have been extensive landscaping done with steps made from railroad ties and lots of non native plants but it's very overgrown now. The property may have other hidden features.

The concrete trestle is about 14 feet wide at the top and 20 or 25 feet tall and the main section is a hundred or a hundred fifty feet long. The tracks themselves are long gone. . It CAN be reached but BE CAREFUL. No really great views from there. It's mostly overgrown and in sections so you can't easily get from one to the other.

     History
    THe house has been abandoned and used by transients for several years. The elevated track trestle has been unused for MANY years and severed in places to make access dificult. Like much of the Dallas, quasi rural areas, this section just West of Cockrell Hill is the scene of new, multifamily developoment.

    Edit 11/23/2020: House is no longer there but the trestle still remains
