The pipes have been removed as of Dec 2016 on the north span.

Looks like CSX is going to put the track back in sometime in 2017-2018.

Thank you so much for posting such awesome photographs of the cape fear river bridge. My mom often told me stories of when she was a child crossing this very bridge when the train was coming. Because there was no where to go she had to somehow climb out onto the cement and hold on for dear life as the train whooshed by. Thank you! Faye
