Railfan Pictures of the Day - 06/03/2011

ESPN Chester Valley Branch Bridgeport PA May 24 2011
As a followup to the page on the former Reading Chester Valley Branch abandonment, the next day they were busy still working their way west from Bridgeport toward Route 202.
The rails at Route 202 had been cut but not yet removed.
The branch was terminated at Henderson Road when the rest of the line was abandoned by Conrail, and as of May 24, the small yard there that was used by the last customer, Allied Waste, had already been partially dismantled.
The only railroad related equipment still on site was this LANO truck.
