Alexander,this is another of the Jaindl's wacky dreams that might or might not work.I'm not against this development idea but it does sound a little bit peculiar since there are other properties available in Allentown besides a truss bridge.

Tony,I read the message you put on here about there being a lot of r.r. bridges in and around the Allentown Pa area.Being from this area I agree that there are many spans that are on Bridgehunters and some that are not.The ones that are not I will have to look for when I am in the Allentown area in the future.I'm pretty sure I saw some spans in my travels.

Apparently the 2nd image is of the predecessor bridge. I'll make the changes when I'm able to access a proper terminal.

Not convinced these 2 photos are of the same structure.There were likely many RR spans in the Allentown area.
