Forgotten Bridge in Kent


I ran across this in a group of negatives I hadn’t looked at in decades. As I recall, this was the Baltimore & Ohio railroad bridge that left the mainline to interchange with the Nickel Plate Road/Norfolk & Western in Kent. The bridge was west of the passenger station. I was told the rails were removed and the bridge itself was unsafe in the late 1970s/early 1980s.

    Unbelievable! I’ve been searching for this for years!

    In the 80’s I remember walking across the bridge. I can’t recall for sure, I think the rails were still there. At any rate, thanks for the memory. I took pictures of the bridge, but I can’t find them anywhere! 😦
