Dana and Kay,i used to work at Reading Tube which is called Cambridge-Lee industries on Tube Drive.These r.r. tracks run right past the plant I worked at.From what I understand tourist trains used to run on this rail line which deadends at the r.r. museum in Hamburg,Pa.Since they run tourist trains on the other rail line which runs to Jim Thorpe i don't think they use this rail line anymore but I'm not sure.I know the rail line isn't abandoned.If and when I get a chance i will look at this bridge.

George looks like a sizable stone arch from sat view. Is this an active Railroad?
