I followed the line several directions and added several tunnels and bridges. Some of them were already and active, and it looks like the tracks are still active as they branch off to a major coal plant.

J.P.,is this rail line active?I followed it towards Clairton and you can see on streetview on the Ravensburg Blvd bridge over the tracks a tunnel.If it isn't active it might be worth looking at.If it's already on Bridgehunters let me know.Thanks.

Based on Google Imagery the bridge has been removed, but I figured I would go ahead and add it.
