East Penn Railway/Octoraro/Pennsy Trestle over East Branch big Elk Creek

(Bridge Hunter, Historic Bridges, Satellite)

Bing caught an image with more water in the creek:
Gregory D. Pawelski posted two photos with the comment: "Pennsylvania Railroad Octoraro Branch Elkview, Pa. Viaduct. - Then and Now."


The track is good south of Oxford, PA, to Herr Foods. South of that the track is tree covered storage until it stops at a material handling facility. So Oxford and Herr Foods must be served from the east over this trestle. In fact there is a spur off the north side of Oxford to serve Tastykake.
I traced the route east to obvious activity in Avondale. Going further east, I find it joining another route in Chadds Ford, PA.
