I was once told that the PRR had made it a point that no other railroad would be permitted to cross above a Pennsy ROW. This location obviously contradicts this. Has anyone else heard this before?
I hadn't heard that...and I can think of another exception to the rule...the Pennsy's Bel-Del branch at P'burg NJ runs along the riverbank and above it are the bridges of the CNJ and the LV.
