C2629 and Everyone:
With the new Portageville Bridge open and in service does anyone know how NS plans to keep
trespassers at bay once the weather gets warmer? Gates could be a good idea but could turn
out to be more problems then they are worth other then constantly having to guard the bridge.
My thought is to install surveillance cameras from an outside provider such as Virtual Railfan.
This way we can all "keep watch" and have a way to see and report trespassing when it occurs.

The only problem that I see here is that it seems that most VR cameras are on higher traffic rail
routes - I noted a post in this topic showing that an average of 12 NS trains use this route daily.
With the new bridge are more trains now using this route?
John Kucko has kept a really good record of the transformation to the new bridge and the
demolition of the old bridge - the drone shots especially enhance this topic. This is a classic
example of learning about NYS places outside my home area of Long Island and makes me
more want to visit Letchworth State Park on a future WNY road trip.
