Okay.Thanks,Luke.I wasn't sure if that was a Septa stop or not.

The bridge is just west of SEPTA's Radnor station.

I agree,Dana and Kay.That's why I think Septa picks up passengers there along with Amtrak.

Interesting that a Railroad Facilitates pedestrians, rarely encounter that.

Yes, it appears that pedestrian walkways were added to the sides of the rail bridge and I-beams were put at the sides to protect the walkways and pedestrians on them. The abutments were widened to support the walks and guard beams.

Looks like they added I-beams to either side to protect the walkways at the sides of the original bridge.

I think along with possibly Amtrak Septa uses this line too.

George looks like an Amtrak Line, if not sure one of our RR enthusiasts will correct.
