10: NWRR Trestle


1965: NWRR Trestle
Alexander J. Elion, June 30 1965

The tracks pass under a long Norfolk and Western Railroad trestle which spans Route 88, Castle Shannon Boulevard, and a fairly long stretch of the trolley line (due to the sharp angle at which the tracks pass under the trestle). The 2005 track alignment adds a set of crossovers whose signals are visible just beyond the trestle.

In 1965 the trestle carried two tracks over the trolley line; the nearer track was mostly removed by the mid 1970s, but a small stretch of span over the outbound track still survives today!
