I have never seen a train on that span, yet, and not even a single picture ever! Nothing from PRR/PC/CR, or AVR. I hear they are always night moves for AVR. Just glad to hear that the span being used after all of those dormant years.
I could only imagine seeing 1st generation PRR power sets passing each other on that bridge in the 1950's, not to mention the steep descent for trains going east on the Connemaugh Division in Aspinwall. I think that grade is steeper than the URR Low Grade into ET.
