Time to revive an old post... Ok, this isn't the greatest video, but it's street running on Bleigh Ave. in Philadelphia. If there weren't do construction there when I spotted this action, I think the video would have been a bit more interesting.

In the Summer of 2017, the Bleigh Ave.track was relaid and all of the other sidings disconnected and almost completely removed from the street paving. The portion of track featured in this video from Milnor St. East to the scrap yard is in a new location about 13 feet South of the old track that was in the middle of Bleigh Ave. In the late 1940s, before Bleigh Ave. was built, this was double track, probably for wartime traffic to the Northern Metals facility.
