PRR bridge at Grassy Sound (Wildwood)?

Postby JJMDiMunno » Wed Jun 24, 2009 12:14 pm

Hey guys,
This technically deals with pre-PRSL trackage, but I'll ask anyway since someone here probably knows the answer.

Does anyone know off the top of their heads what type of bridge the PRR used to cross Grassy Sound on their Wildwood Branch between Wildwood Junction (WJS) and Angelsea? I'm pretty sure it was movable, but what type of bridge was it specifically? Should have been right around milepost 75.3 on the WJS route...

Thanks in advance guys,

Mike DiMunno

It was an 'A' frame swing span. Postcards of it can frequently be seen on eBay.

There were also two concrete spans west of Grassy Sound, and a trestle across Beach Creek.
