Description 

Rail owned by: Reading then Conrail, now Norfolk Southern.

Interesting fact...The CVRR another railroad at the time, ran through the town of Shippensburg and onto what is now called Earl Street, but back then it was commonly called Railroad St. There was a station on Earl St. and Orange St. The CVRR would pass by that and then go under this bridge.
