ST - Pequabuck River Bridge (Canal Line)
View from southeast (Cronk Road)
Current switching limit is immediately south (near side) of the bridge, but NS/Pan Am has been reluctant to sell the bridge and the stub extending to Northwest Drive for rails-to-trails conversion.

Pequabuck River crossing on the former New Haven-Northampton Canal Line, most recently cut back to Plainville from Avon in 1991. In-service track ended south of the bridge for much of the time since, but in the late 2010s the track across the bridge was returned to service to allow greater switching flexibility for the Plainville railroad yard.
