NS/Penn Bridge over Juniata River near Ryde, PA

On the Famed Middle Division - The once graceful stone arch bridge at Ryde, PA hosts yet another NS Intermodal train, (this one eastbound) April 1, 2017. As the rain swollen Juniata River gushes between the abutments; an angry sky looms overhead. Penn Central reinforced many, but not all, (thank heavens), of the stone arch bridges on the Middle Division during their stormy tenure here with this aesthetically offensive concrete annexation. Of the few bridges that were spared, I comment in jest that PC just didn't know where they, (the bridges) were.
It took a little work to figure out which county this bridge was in. It is the first bridge I have come across for which Bridge Hunter has no photos. The satellite image indicates the deck used to hold four tracks but it now has just two.
