From any B&S fans:
 
Western New York & Pennsylvania RR: Belvidere, NY
 
the WNY&P bridge under Rt 19  
 
the stone abutment by the bridge was for the original Buffalo & Susquehanna bridge that was at this location before the highway was re-routed onto the B&S grade
 
Photographed by Chris Bigham, October 10, 2016.

That was an really active valley with the Erie, B&S and the PS&N all running close by.

Two of the B&H C424ms head east on the former Lackawanna main after finishing up a switching job:

Did the B&S cross the Erie at grade level? Angle of the old abutment would indicate it did.

I remember seeing a picture of the lines crossing at grade, but can't locate it now. Does anyone know the name of the tower/junction or railroad town name?

Roc, that would be a picture well worth seeing. My Grandfather rode those B&S rails in his career that began in the early 1900's. As a kid I remember stored away in his cellarway after he retired his extra large "Buffalo trip" lunch pail. I always wanted it but it disappeared after his death.

I searched for more than an hour and couldn't find it. There are so many amateur photo and history sites that I can't recall and that don't get updated (i.e. poor chance of showing up in Google or sites with crap search like Yahoo, Facebook, or this site for that matter).
 
1k attaboys to the intrepid foamer that can track it down.

Great find VTM! The height of the bridge would indicate another abutment might have been located to the rear (camera) side of the remains in the modern photo supporting the open trestle side of the overpass. I have seen several B&S overpasses along the line through Pennsylvania and New York state. Obviously they did not care for grade level crossings if they could avoid it.
Any idea what used the girder supported bridge in the background? If I could get the exact location or coordinates it might be interesting to see on google earth.

Bridge in the background would be the old RT 19.

Thank you for the direction. Sad to see no trace of the B&S. Time moves on and the landscape changes with it.
