Track went to the slag dump, bridge had the nickname "hot metal bridge" by c&bl track gangs, theres 2 bridges here one over the river and one over the ex PRR mainline, the bridge over the mainline is lined with bricks about halfway up to prevent molten slab from falling into the PRR tracks

Thanks,Dana and Kay.Looks like a spur that dead ends at the quarry or whatever business that is.
