NS/Pennsy 1906 Cut-Stone Bridge, Middle Division, Bridge No. 147

(Bridge Hunter, no Historic Bridges, Satellite)

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.
I'm a sucker for cut-stone bridges. This one was reinforced with concrete by Conrail ca. 1980. [Bridge Hunter]
