The BHRA Aerial Photography Project (Bob's Pictures of   
       Pennsylvania Heavy Industry & the Surrounding Countryside)

 

We begun the BHRA Aerial mapping project a year or so ago.  Initially we used aerial photos taken and donated by others (some of these can be seen on the maps page).  In Mid January 2003, Sam - an avid trolley fan offered to take a BHRA staff person up to take our own aerial photos. Since the airspace over Pennsylvania is a less crowded and a bit more accessible we chose begin our aerial photography project there.

Here is an abandoned Bethlehem Steel Factory.  At BHRA we exclusively use American Made Rail. The Brooklyn Trolley project uses vintage 100lb & 110lb Rail Manufactured by Bethlehem Steel in the Heyday of the Pennsylvania Steel Industry and American Manufacturing.
