i noticed possibly an abandoned bridge off of rte.869.is this bridge and or any abandoned rail on this line?please let me know.thank you.
You may possibly located the bridge for the Scalp Level Branch maybe.
Thanks Joshua for the information.I do have a question though.Is the rail line next to the abandoned bridge i saw and am asking about active?Looks like it is when looking at google maps.
It is still active next to the Beaver Creek. It would be on the opposite side of Seesetown Rd and cross the South Folk Little Conemaugh River.
Thanks Josh for the information.Looking at google satellite are there 2 bridges or 1 that are abandoned?Looks like 2 to me.
George, i need you to post the map link so i can tell if it is 2 or 1 bridge.
Disregard the post from a few minutes ago. There are 2 bridges. Only one is still active why the other has had the tracks taken out.
Josh,i know about the active rail line from what you have told me.The bridge that had the rail removed is the one i'm talking about.From what i see on google satellite it looks like there is another bridge next to the abandoned bridge.That's what i'm asking about or is it possibly one bridge altogether?
There are 2.
Thanks Josh.I thought it was 2.Sometimes they are considered 1 bridge if they are connected together.
I know. What is your email. I think I found another. I'll email you the link for it.
Josh,my e-mail address is email@example.com.Send me locations of any abandoned railroad bridges that you find.Thanks.
Long time since last checked, The Scalp Level branch may have been parallel but its route goes to Dunlo, PA. I'll be looking further this route.
Forget the last remark, The Scalp Level Branch had junctioned off just south of the first curve, heading towards Salix, which is latin for Willow. Most Likely the Scalp Level Branch must've followed its original grade through Salix to Scalp Level.I'm positive of this.
I have followed the mainline after Salix, to confirm that the main line does indeed reach Scalp Level Junction in Paint, PA.
