Just looked at street view picture #1 and saw a Septa station sign so it looks like Septa does stop at the station by this bridge.Also the stairs are another giveaway to Septa and Amtrak picking up at this rail station.

The name of the highway is King of Prussia Road, not King of Prussia Highway

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.

I do agree,Ed.Looks like they added I-Beams Ed.

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.
