Both were built about 100 years ago by the WPT, which later became the P&WV, then part of the N&W about 1960.? Have not unpacked my RR books since I moved, so no exact dates.? The more easterly of the two led to what is now called the 'Wabash Tunnel', from which the RR line crossed the Mon. River into downtown Pittsburgh.? Think I recall that this connection, and the cantilever truss bridge, were scrapped in the 30's or 40's.? The bridge piers remained, and may have been re-used to construct a commuter road from the city into the southern hills area.

I was in the Pittsburg area on Tuesday going on
college tours with my daughter and saw two bridges on I376E
that had signs that said Norfolk and Western Railway Company
on them.? Could not get any photos as I was driving. These were
high bridges and of steel construction.? Does anyone know when
they were built and what they lead to or from?
