Wouldn't be surprised to see some bigger trains down this side pending inspection of the bridge in Syracuse that the side fell off from today.

I saw the video of the side falling off the bridge, lucky nobody got hurt or killed.
That bridge could be out of service for awhile.

I don't think the side panels contributed to the capacity of the structure. I think maybe some stress cracks compounded by water freezing in them led the side to finally fall off. There doesn't appear to be any rebar in it. And they could probably just wall off the underneath and put fill in there if the integrity is in doubt.
