Amtrak - Trout Brook Bridge

Map 

Description 

Large stone arch over Trout Brook on the combined former H&NH and HP&F route through West Hartford. Was likely widened when the HP&F route to Waterbury was double-tracked by the NYNH&H in the early 20th century. Now carries the Amtrak Springfield Line and the New Britain-Hartford Busway.
