I do believe that's a Charlie Houser Collection photo if I'm not mistaken.
 
Anywho, can anyone GTL for this one? I know it's a tight shot, but there's a really big hint "floating" around in the photo to ID it.

Actually yes there is! A few days before the CR takeover a float broke free and a car went into the drink. They sent a barge crane and divers to fish it out of the North River. The diver went down to hook up the crane but re-surfaced and asked what was the number of the car they wanted. The wreck master replied don't worry about the number, just hook onto it! The diver replied...."well there are five or six down here...which one do you want?"

LMAO! That's too funny! I figured the slips to the bridges would be rather silted up, thus not allowing the river bottom to hide that much "loot" down there in the briny depths, but after almost 80 years of constant carfloating, accidents (and "artifacts") are bound to have found their way to Davy Jones' Locker, I guess!  
 
Thanks Keith!

Gotta say Bethlehem- the LV track coming from the right and the Reading track that has been cut off.

No sir, it is not. I will say however, that this particular abutment connected to the PRR at one time.

Oh, you "too smart for you own good" ex-employees, LOL!
 
That is correct, and this looks "down" the ramp from the PRR connection at Lincoln Tower interlocking in Metuchen. NJ on the ex-PRR NE Corridor. This connection was built in the late 1800's to allow LVRR trains to run to Jersey City on the PRR until they built their own mainline in 1895 to Newark and effected a much closer connection for passenger trains there.
 
I find it quite amazing that considering when these stones were first laid (approching 125 years ago), that they still stand today, minus the bridge of course. Built to last!
