Easton is the correct city, could we narrow it down just a little, there's a couple of possibilities.

Believe that Keith ("Darktown2") nailed this one first, but it's the bridge over 24th street on the Easton & Northern branch.  (Brother Mike included a nice Bob Wilt photo at that same location in his article on the E&N in the spring 2014 issue of TRP.)

24th Street bridge was over the line, pictured is the bridge/trestle over Spring Street (EA-78). Photo is shared from FB and listed as taken in 1973 and the photographer not listed.

Was surprised to see that a street view of that area from Googlemaps shows the bridge over Spring Street still in place.
 
Nice picture....thanks for posting!

No guesses, location is "off the Main Line, East of Allentown", a place I often post about......

Last photo, also a shared image (uncredited) from FB, shows LV 124 passing Victor-Balata Belting Co. in 1973 on it's way back to Easton.

Well gee Guy, that clue gave it away, LOL! South Easton branch, or whatever it was officially called.
