Nicholson Bridge, Pennsylvania, still in operation. The first section, built in 1851 and completed in 1915, this railroad bridge still runs today for the Lackawanna Railway system. It stands at 240 feet above the creek and was originally built to move coal. It was snowing on the day I shot these photos and you can see snowflakes in the lens. The concrete structure looms above motorists and is an astounding site for all to see. You can also see “Lackawanna RR” etched in the concrete arch on the far right arch in the photo.
