    Thanks for the thumbs up on that Neil. You have the 6' safety fences a lot on rail bridges in the urban areas of NJ. Plus ones that have rails below them with catenary, you get the steel plate shield in front of them for 3 to 4 feet so no one tries to poke the wires below.

    This bridge had it since the mid 1960's when rail traffic was still a factor & the state expanded Rt. 35 here to 4 lanes wide.

    I've only ever seen fencing like that on iron-ore lines, where they're intended to keep pellets from falling onto the road below. One won't be much of an issue, but a bunch could be a problem

    Sleepless night so I figured I work on west Keyport. Starting to come along so heading east towards Atco Tile tomorrow. Keyport - The Gateway to the Bayshore.

    Have to still adjust the carspawners because with the "tailgating" in some of the screen shots, it looks like actually Rt. 35 here during morning & evening rush hour. Or the dreaded summer weekend traffic during the summer tourist season. Those who been through it know what I mean.


















    ​Enjoy....
