Geoff,i followed the abandoned ROW to Catawissa from the Rupert Bridge and I think this bridge might be on the same ROW as the Rupert Bridge which would be a Reading Railroad bridge.

George- I don't have any information on the bridge but it must be the Reading RR Catawissa Branch.

I saw what looks like an abandoned railroad bridge near where the pin is on the map.I looked for a Columbia County listing and didn't see none.Does this bridge look familiar to anybody and is there any information on this bridge that can be found?
