PVRR - Water Street Railroad Bridge

Map 

Street Views 

Description 

Most recently used as part of an interchange track between the PVRR and Pan Am, though it was recently closed as a result of a different bridge being condemned. Prior to that I am unsure as to whether this was B&M, NH, or shared trackage given its connection to both the B&M Conn. River route and the NH Holyoke Branch.
