Railfan Pictures of the Week - 11/17/2013

SEPTA Norristown High Speed Line Norristown Transportation Center Norristown PA and Bridgeport PA August 2, October 16, 18, 24, November 4 and 8 2013

At the beginning of August 2013, this is what the entrance to Norristown Transportation Center looked like. A new concrete deck had been poured but the rest of the details would wait a couple more months while they concentrated on the portion of the bridge over the river.
Finally, with a little over three weeks until the announced reopening on November 11, they have reached the deck on October 16 and have started to lay the ties.
Two days later and almost all the ties are down at the station.
A week later, the rails are down and they are dumping ballast at the station.
One week to go, the third rail is in and they are removing the safety nets along the bridge.
Three days left and the final touches are being attended to ...
one of those being the third rail, which would be reconnected here at Bridgeport sometime over the weekend.
