Correcting my other shot of this bridge labeled as 34.9, this bridge is #35.09. These embossed railings still guard many bridges, platforms, and walkways all over the system, 46 years after the railroad lost its PRR identity to Penn Central.

At left, one can see where the 4th track from 'WC' at 'Weirton Junction' stub ended here at the west end of triple-tracked concrete 'trough'-style Bridge 34.9, directly across from the WV/OH line marker. MP35 at the east end of this bridge.

Twin curved, double-track steel girder bridges span Harmon's Creek at the east end of Colliers, each protected by classic Pennsylvania Railroad bridge railing.

One of many ubiquitous Pennsy signal bridges, this beauty spanned four tracks, and held the distant (approach) signals for 'WC' Interlocking two miles west, and for 'WC's remote 'CO' Interlocking at Mile 35.9 at Colliers to the east.

Looking down the big hill westward, down the former Pennsylvania Railroad triple-track mainline right-of-way, toward Weirton, WV, Steubenville, OH, and points west, toward Saint Louis, MO. Love the PRR keystone logos on the signs and mileposts!

Before 1950, these two bikers would be eastbound, smack in the middle of now daylighted Dinsmore Tunnel (#4), one of ten tunnels between Pittsburgh Union Station (Tunnel #1 - Today's Light Rail Tunnel) and Bowerston, Ohio (Tunnel #10), also daylighted.

How long has it been since the last hand grasped this still sturdy westbound station platform subway railing at Hanlin, West Virginia... Maybe a passenger headed for Columbus, Cincinnati, Dayton, Indianapolis, or Saint Louis?

Here was the westbound platform access stairway out of the Hanlin passenger station subway. Yellow-gold wall bricks were a PRR standard for these station subway walls. Probably 80 years since these steps were used.

In this eastward view, we see the westbound passenger platform and the old tower-train radio repeater antenna at Hanlin, WV. The station pedestrian subways are still intact, many, many years after the last passenger train stopped here.
