Railfan Pictures of the Day - 10/27/2010

SEPTA/CSX/NS Stony Creek Branch North Wales PA October 2010
October 7 2010 and the bridge over Sumneytown Pike is still standing, but not for long.
By October 12 the bridge and one of the bridge abutments are gone and the other will shortly join them.
October 14 and the new eastern abutment begins to take shape.
The forms for the abutment are set by October 18 and the concrete is being poured.
Two days later the concrete work is almost finished.
October 23 2010 is the big day. A second crane has arrived and the new bridge sections wait on flatbed trailers until it is their turn.
By the afternoon, the new bridge is in place.
October 25 and the next phase of securing the bridge to the foundation and restoring the rail line on top of it begins.

All pictures October 7, 12, 14, 18, 20, 23 and 25 2010
