The old Route 206 Bridge is now history...

(Train sightings on 2-3-12.)

On January 29th, I ventured down to Belle Mead (NJ) in order to check on the old Route 206's status to see if its demolition was starting. Ritacco Construction had started to prepare for the span over CSX's Trenton Line for its removal. Fast forward to the afternoon of February 3rd and that old span was now history! The speed with which the span was dismantled was amazing. Two images what it looked like on February 3rd. The northbound mixed freight is CSX Q410 and (southbound) CSX K532 leader is CSX 912. Can't wait to capture the next phase of this construction, namely the removal of the bridge abutments.
