UP - County Highway DJ Overpass

Photos 

Barrel Shot Looking Southwest

The former dual (now single) tracks run southeast to northwest. County Highway DJ comes from the north, turns sharply to the southwest to go under the tracks (shown here) and intersects with Clymet Road. Hwy DJ turns to the south while Clymet Road runs parallel to the tracks briefly, then heads west.
