Remarks & Notes 
SEPTA's AEM-7 pushes an afternoon express train across the Delaware River over the West Trenton Railroad Bridge eastbound towards the former Reading station in West Trenton. This bridge was built in 1913, replacing the older 1875 wrought-iron truss Yardleyville Centennial Bridge, its piers still standing. Long gone are Reading's famous Crusader passenger trains - both steam and diesel powered, along with its green and yellow painted freight locomotives. Even B&O trains, as well as trains from CNJ rumbled over this bridge. Today, the two track main sees truncated passenger service from Philadelphia, PA to West Trenton, NJ and CSX freight trains.
