The latest trip down to SSRT proved interesting. A new connection trail recently opened which connects the SSRT Trail system to the Bloody Skillet State forest trail system. Along this connection it utilizes a small portion of the 1966-68 abandonment of the line. This picture was taken at MP 31.8 The railbed is clear and probably in use for vehicle traffic.

At MP 31.85 a new bridge was constructed on the original abutments spanning Beech Creek.

A view of the new bridge, also shows this bridge must have been missing otherwise I would figure they would have fixed the old one up.

At MP 32.0 (after a short walk) is a large rock cut. I did not find the mile post but the growth is in and may be obscured. There are no more bridges between here and the Hogback Tunnel which is at MP 33.7
 
Amazing when I look at a map of the railroad that there were 15 bridges between Orviston and Clarence. Some are intact, others are missing.

Just to let everyone know, Jeff Feldmeier (Beech_cricker) passed in June. He as an expert on
the Beech Creek Railroad and provided a lot of information when I was researching this
railroad line
