The Downingtown Viaduct, built 1892'

The Downingtown four  (4) arch stone arch viaduct, Located in Downingtown, PA is often referred to as the Low bridge line, was part of the original Broadway mainline through this area. Over time, increased freight and passenger traffic combined with longer & heavier trains necessitiated placing helpers on many trains due to the undulalting profile of the original mainline.

This bottleneck situation necessatiated a major line restructing in the Downingtown area. The bottleneck issue was resolved with the construction of the High Bridge line. The new line followed more forgiving track profile and topography
 to the to Southeast of Downingtown,PA.
