Railfan Pictures of the Week - 08/11/2013

SEPTA NHSL Viaduct Norristown and Bridgeport PA August 2 2013
It's four weeks into the Schuylkill River Viaduct project and work is progressing. A few pieces of equipment can be found in the middle of the span most days ...
for good reason as the track work on the Norristown side has been completely stripped down to the deck with a new concrete base poured.
On the Bridgeport side, the safety railings have been removed and the walkway deck was next, first unbolted from the structure and loaded onto a truck on the bridge ...
then handed off to a Pettibone which stacked them neatly in piles to be picked up by another truck. There is also a staging area on the Norristown side under the bridge near the river.
