The BX Draws

May 24th, 2009 by

There's not a whole lot to say about this set of railroad drawbridges, other than they both seem to be locked into place and unable to open. One belongs to Amtrak and seems better maintained than it's sister bridge just a few feet away, which is owned by CSX and is now a single track bridge, with the rail ties rotted and burned where the second track has been lifted.  Despite their forlorn, rusty and graffitied appearance, Both still see trains on a daily basis, and are located in one of the darkest corners of an urban area you can expect to find.
