This curved bridge was a feeder for Northern Central trains. It contains one steel pony girder on the east end, a smaller deck girder and then three large steel deck girders resting on stone piers . Before this bridge was built the trains would have to swing around the tracks to the west and then put the train in reverse to cross the CVRR bridge into Harrisburg. Northern Central did this procedure for about 50 years.
