Mark about to go away

Recommended Posts

I took this picture tonight. Some concrete is already down, but the straight-on profile of the top looks undisturbed. NJ0547 is/was on the near end of the top of the old RR abutment.

Bill - Cool station. Looks like that bridge not only went over the small farm road there, but also over another railroad and a creek (which is what the underpass in that bridge is for, I'm guessing.) No luck finding NJ0583?

 

Do they plan on taking that 100 across the river to the west there?

I looked almost 10 years ago for the lower disk, and couldn't find enough evidence to be sure whether the culvert was under the present road or had been removed. I suppose I should have logged a NF.

 

It was quite unusual to have two marks so close horizontally, even though they had 35 feet vertical separation.

 

The Hwy 100 extension follows the old RR route out of town, starting from somewhere just west of I380. We've been using a piece of 100 for years, out to Edgewood Rd, while there was a debate about environmental impact of various routes and about funding for the extension. It will cross the river before turning south.

 

Today they removed enough concrete I'm pretty sure that the upper disk is gone, somewhere in the rubble pile below.
