Some shots of the Trestle at the Trail Head in White Haven for Lehigh Gorge State Park.

The present day Reading and Northern uses the tracks.  The track crosses at a gradual angle.   It is kind of interesting how the beam and cross members span the gap between the abutments. The stonework is pretty neat too.
