Lookin down by DragonWolfACe Lookin down by DragonWolfACe
Heres looking down on ya. We are looking down, way down, atop Route 43, or the Mon Fayette Expressway at Mingo Creek trestle. The railroad soars above the valley at a height of 200 feet, the 4 lane highway is another 50 feet above that.

The trestle is nearly a century old and may outlast the highway bridge.

W&LE 3046 is one of three SD40Xs that EMD built. Basically a SD40-2 on a SD40 frame.

I wonder what the people living in the house next to the bridge think of the possibility of a derailment...
