Rail Bridge[edit]

Here is an extract of the third and fourth bridges from the mouth of the river, taken from the List of crossings of the Schuylkill River. The "Rail bridge" was actually a Baltimore and Ohio Railroad bridge, a fact to be gleaned from the Philadelphia Subdivision reference, or at least it seems that way to me.
