Thanks for the update, sad to see it ripped up. Tragic the state didn't step in and save the infrastructure.

The K&K line to the Kinzua Bridge is still in place as the scrappers get closer to this area.  
 
This track leads to a connection with the B&P that is still in place.

This is Erie track. It was double tracked through here.
 
The K&K line to the Kinzua Bridge is still in place as the scrappers get closer to this area.  
 
The narrow gauge Bradford Bordell & Kinzua RR was to the left. I climbed a ramp to a bridge over the Erie RR. This line was abandoned in 1906.
