Remarks & Notes 
A Classic's Demise

It was a dreary morning, appropriate for this scene. The signal bridge at milepost 225 on the old PRR Middle Division hangs in the air as work crews guide it alongside the right of way to have its legs amputated.

At about 05:30 EST, MOW crews obtained the track authorities to begin removing the last three PRR Position Light installations east of Altoona. Lost today were 225, 227, and 230, of which 225 was the sole PRR-era bridge. This brought an end to a classic railfanning location.

Focus now shifts to points west--the next PRR signal bridge to fall will be MG (one I do NOT suggest trying to access these days).
