Welcome to my photography gallery. I shoot exclusively digital now (Canon T3i DSLR), despite having a small refrigerator full of new slide film. My subjects are generally railroad-related, with an emphasis on construction projects. While viewing the photo collections below, CLICK ANY PHOTO TO ENLARGE IT FULL-SCREEN.

CSX RF&P Subdivision: Update on the bridge replacement project at Cameron Run (CFP102) as of January 29, 2010
Work continues apace at Cameron Run on the RF&P to replace the old two-track bridge with a new one having wider clearance between track centers. As of January 29, huge pilings had been driven into the ground--apparently about 45' deep apiece--and welders were preparing them for the framework that will go across their tops. When completed, the new bridge will be assembled on the framework, a crane will left out the old bridge, and the new bridge will be slid horizontally into place. Then, presumably, the pilings will be removed.
Fyi, my previous report on the Cameron Run bridge was dated December 2, and can be found below.
