Today is the day! The new bridge should be in service this afternoon.

Anyone get a pic of the first one over?? Maybe NS had a publicity crew at the bridge? Seems they would want to pat their backs on this job well done!

Facebook is full of pics!
 
I got to the park at about 2:50pm. I had missed the first train.
 
My buddy told me there were about 25 people in attendance at the Upper Falls.  
 
People were also at Inspiration Point. Another friend said pics were better at Inspiration Point.  
 
I took pics of the 2nd train over the bridge at the Upper Falls overlook. That was around 3:44pm. Good pics were hard because the old trestle is in front of the new bridge.
 
I tried to hang around for the 3rd train. It was stopped at Dentons Corners Road when I left the park at 4:35pm.
