Catskill Mountain Railroad Bridge C9

This bridge underwent structural repairs and was fully re-decked from 2011-2012. It was inspected and certified on 12-7-12, with the CMRR's passenger train crossing it the next day. This was the first passenger train since 1954. First Revenue train since freight service ended in 1976.

Volunteers from CMRR are trying to replace ties and, eventually, rails, in order to re-open this branch for excursion traffic.
