The bridge is on private Beech Nut property. The canal trail runs on the roadbed of the West Shore R.R. across the street. Beech Nut has just re-located to a new facility a few miles away.

a very interesting reuse of a railroad bridge by a factory. I'm not a fan of it being enclosed but at least its standing.
