NS - Pearl River Bridge
Posted February 3, 2016, by Barry Kern (bkern77 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Yes that is the NS bridge. But, your river is incorrect. The bridge pictured is actually crossing the East Pearl River. Approx 8 miles west of this bridge is another River called the West Pearl River that has a larger railroad bridge crossing it.
