Charlie -  
 
I visited there for the first time this summer. It is truly impressive.
 
The bridges themselves (there's another big one further east and inland a little) are both closed to hikers, but yes, the rest of the ROW is open and improved.

I wonder if they got this cleaned up in time for rush hour? If not, there might have been a lot of unhappy bankers trying to get back to their mansions that night.

OK, this one might take us until 2016 to figure out......South of Trenton, NJ (railroad west), these kind of stations are/were quite popular, and in fact some still exist. Today, this location serves both commuter and long distance trains.

Umm, is this another view of the same place, or is this a new GTL?  
 
If we could, to avoid confusion and multiple concurrent GTL's, let's answer one before we start another, please.  
 
If there are no more guesses by tonight for my post photo, I will reveal the answer, so that we may move on to this latest photo.

The second one is Greensburg, PA and has nothing to do with the current GTL.

Thanks for clearing that up, Henry....I didn't think it was the same place!  
 
So THAT'S what Greensburg PA looks (or used to look) like!

Ralph, I'll take one more guess at your GTL and say Perryville?

Charlie, good try, but you went the other way! My photo credit says Aberdeen, which is two towns south (west) of Perryville....Again, the caption could be wrong, so who knows?

Bridge 1A - Lodge Members -
 
Your writer inclined to buy into the Aberdeen, MD site. Recall, Aberdeen not far removed from my own residence. Chances are,  
current "Street View" photo maps may well support it. (Else, writer with little reason to chase over there.)
 
In the period of the instant Photo, during the WWII Era times, Aberdeen quite an important stop, serving the adjacent Army  
Proving Ground installation. Also, some trains going thru were with steam, altho under the wires. There were schedules in place  
to and from points which did not have the wire...

Yes, moving right along......I don't know why, but I would like to hazzard a guess as to this being Little Creek, VA?

You're trying to hard, ease up a little, let your thoughts float away.

Hmm, I don't know why I thought this was part of the New York, Philadelphia & Norfolk Railroad float operation.......It does look like a port setting, and you said go South, not East, so................Baltimore is my only other guess.

Bridge 1A - gfluck1 - Lodge Members -
 
Your writer inclined to agree with the estimation it could have been Little Creek. The Coach (on the right) a bit bothersome.  
Could it have been a PRR P-70 type? Can't recall if some of the cars had the end windows. Compare, B&O Coaches with  
end windows date to the period.
 
A vague thought? Possibly Calvert St. Station, Baltimore (earliest at NCRR, later PRR)? But, something not adding up with  
the conjecture? More? Lack of a date, even approximate, would help. Perhaps this Photo also in long ago Hayman book?
 
(Revised thought?) Could that possibly have been at Love Point, MD? Recall, there a PRR Ferry which ran a regular schedule  
(esp. prior 1952) between BAL and the site...
