In a complete reversal of things, today a steam engine runs back and forth on a scenic run through this area/town where this diesel once sat.

Wow, nothing? OK, this yard is on a branch that follows a river. And your other clue, it's near a big city, but not on a Division that shares a name with said big city.......But it's not far away.

Admittedly I don't know......I know there is/was a yard in the middle of the Delmarva Secondary. Perhaps there?

Well, right side of the PRR system, but wrong state.........Go two states north, and to the west side of said state. Besides the PRR, you had four other railroads serving this city.

Yes sir, this is Kent Yard in Phillipsburg, NJ on the Bel-Del Branch (named for the largest end point town and the river which it follows all the way north from Trenton.

While technically a Conrail photo (circa 1977), this si a PRR engine at a PRR location, though you won't see a train right up here today.  
 
Photo credits to be revealed after the correct guess is given.

I'm happy to say that I think that Charlie can be "safe" in the assumption that he guessed correctly..........

So, nobody but Charlie and myself?
 
Well, this is the PRR's Safe Harbor Tressle that crosses the Conestoga River where it dumps into the Susquehanna River. The line that the engine is on (and is abandoned today) was the Atglen and Susquehanna that the PRR built in 1906, and almost directly below it (and still used today) is the PRR's Columbia and Port Deposit line, which NS still uses to day to run trains between Harrisburg PA and Baltimore MD.

Here's a view looking the other direction (east and downriver) and looking up at the bridge.

Those are great photos. I think this is one of the most impressive bridges the Pennsy ever built. The way I understand it, the upper bridge is now in use as a part of a walking trail. This is definitely on my bucket-list of places to visit and photograph. Hopefully these future photos will include some trains on the Port Road!
