Bridge Documentation

This bridge is a viaduct of decent length composed of numerous short spans supported by steel bents. The riveted details and triangular shape of the bents repeated throughout the length of the bridge add an element of geometric beauty to this bridge. Be sure to view the photo gallery for this bridge which also has several historical construction photos of this bridge. This bridge still carries trains today to and from the Owens-Illinois glass plant in Crenshaw, PA

Rob Keith provided the following additional information:

In 1903, the Pittsburg, Shawmut & Northern Railroad began construction on its southern extension as the Brookville & Mahoning Railroad. The Dellwood Viaduct (or Lane's Viaduct) was completed in 1907. In 1910, the railroad was renamed the Pittsburg & Shawmut Railroad to avoid confusing it with the Boston & Maine. In 1916, the P&S separated from the PS&N and became it's own railroad. Genesee & Wyoming, Inc. purchased the Pittsburg & Shawmut Railroad in 1996 and incorporated it into G&W's Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad.
