I have shot more pictures of that bridge than any other I have ever photographed. The north side borders a VA hospital, and it was a park like setting where you could just sit by the Susquehanna and let em' roll. Lot of freight traffic back in those days too! Nice shot, nice memory!

The Amtrak train looks to be the Montrealer, with a 10-6 sleeper and Slumbercoach ahead of the Amfleet cars.
