BR&P - Wilson's Bridge
Posted July 5, 2021, by Luke

I don't know who changed it, but had they consulted HistoricAerials for maps, they'd have seen that it is the Harmony Line's bridge.

It also appears that the bridge, or at least the ROW, was converted into a state highway.

I don't believe this is a BR&P Bridge, tho it crossed it. Should be changed back to Harmony Line/PHB&NC.
