Re #29, as I noted in some earlier blog, Ron’s full pix of demolition of this Main Line bridge and the Oyster Bay Branch bridge are at: <http://sbiii.com/limpbrdg.html#rrbridgs>.  Re #38, the old 2013 blog notes “telegraph poles” for what were actually that early PRR/LIRR electrification project just documented.  Sam, III
