Jim,
 
What a coincidence. I went to finish the viaducts (out of state) by visiting the Moodna viaduct on Saturday. Fortunately, I got there in plenty of time and realized I was pretty close to Poughkeepsie so I took a trip up there and took plenty of shots. I should have them up by tomorrow evening.

After visiting the Moodna Viaduct I just had to go where this most important bridge is. I'm glad I did

I hear that there's an effort to make this a rail-to-trail. Don't ask me how as this is what several people have told me.

From this location, the tracks become level and are still in place.
