This crossing is unusual because it has two connections in the southwest quadrant. It is also unusual because most of the tracks that were in the crossing in 1938 are still here. The notable exception is the Pennsy Panhandle tracks that used to be on the west side of the Western Avenue Corridor.
|This was a deliberate attempt to incorporate the two water towers and the smokestack that I took photos of on the east of the connections.|
I also grabbed some shots of the crossing from a commuter train.
You can see the regular connection on the right and the beginning of the flyover connection in the foreground. In the middle background is the "aerial pier." (The green hue is because the windows on the train are tinted green.)
