11/26/2003 Newark DE B&O RR Bridge
The B&O RR used to pass right through downtown Newark, DE crossing several roads at grade and above, on bridges. One such bridge is this one, which still bears its B&O logo on the side. A painted stencil logo, it has survived for many years. Although this is not the oldest bridge in Newark (there is another, much more interesting bridge only a short distance from this one that is also older) it is very unusual to see an old logo like this on a bridge. UPDATE: The B&O logo is no more! The city of Newark has repainted the bridge with a rainbow. Another one bites the dust!
