BEDFORD AND BRIDGEPORT RAILROAD.
—ENGINEER'S OFFICE, BEDFORD, PA.—To the

The accompaning map exhibits the location of
the Bedford and Bridgeport Railroad, from its
connection with-the Huntingdon and Broad
Top Railroad, at /donut Dallas, to its junction
with the Pittsburgh and '.Connellsville Rail
road, at Bridgeport. The'map also shows the
general topographical - features of the country
through which it passes, and illustrates the
ruling points of the survey governing the lo
cation of the road.
The profile exhibits .the gen,eral , arrange
ment of the gradients employed in die revised
line of locatiori.
Beginning at Monnt , Dallas; in' Thssey's
Mountain Gap,fthe line ..crosses (to the, south
bank of Juniata river, affording at its landing
a point from which a branch road can be con
structed around end of mountain to reach the
developed iron ores of Black' •Vajley. , , Thence
up along south side. of the - river to a point
near the town of Bedford, where the river is
again crossed and a line carried along the
north side of the river, past Bedford, and
through the village •of Milltown, and up to
Red Bridge near Presbyterian Church, at
which place the line again crosses the Juniata.
river, following the general course of Buffalo
creek branch to its head waters at Buffalo
summit. Thence striking the source of Little
Will's creek and following down it and cross
ing Great Will's creek to its junction with the
Pittsburgh and Connellsville Railroad in the
surveyed town of Bridgeport.
Buffalo summit-is a marked dividing ridge
between the tributary waters of the Potomac
on the south and those of the Susquehanna on
the north. It is the only, srmiyof-Anytseri
ous iniportenee on the route.
The whole distance from Mount Dallas to
Bridgeport by the located line is 309-10 miles.
From Mount Dallas to Redford the line en
counters a succession of hard limestone river
bluffs alternated with valley fiats, making the
cost of the graduation of this portion of the
road quite expensive.
From Bedford to Bridgeport the line is laid
along river fiats, and in the valleys of connect
ing streams, through a country of greatly
There is but little difference in the charac
ter of the country on either side of the river
from Mount Dallas to Bedford.
Crossing the river at Mount Dallas affords
a branch outlet to the iron ores of Black val
ley, reaching also the trade of the fertile val
ley of Friend's Cove. The chief advantages
consist in improved facilities of crossing the
river and in the alignment and gradients of
The alignment of the road considering the
rough character of the main portion of the
country through which it passes, is very satis
factory. 19 4-10 miles of the distance is made
of straight lines, and 11 t-10• miles of Curved ,
On the most difficult portion of the line,
from Mount Dallas to Bedford, the greatest
curvature used is 9 degries, leaving a radius of
637 feet. On the Bridgeport end it has not
been found necessary to use greater than an
0 degree 'curve and even this at only a few
The maximum gradient on the Mount Dallas
end is only 39 feet par mile, graduating down,
to the horizontal—for the road at Bedford is'
only 10 feet higher than at the Mount Dallas
connection, in etKlistance of 7 7-10 miles.
From Bedford to Buffalo summit the gra
dients ascend in a regular order, beginning
with almost horizontal and rising at the rate
of 20, 30, to 52.8 feet per mile, until the sum
mit is approached. One mile on either aide of
it the gradients are 93 feet per mile. From
the extent and uniformity of the ground under
the two miles saddling the summit, no effort
has been made to cut it down to the maximum
grade of 52.8 feet per mile. An average cut
ting of two miles in length and 20 feet deep
would accomplish this—besides the slate
rock at this place is of the softest kind and
easily excavted, but such a work exceeded the
design of expenditure in location, and hence,
has been left for subsequent action.
Erom the south aide of Buffalo summit range
the gradients descend gradually to Bridgeport
—beginning with 52.8 feet per mile graduat
ing to 40 feet per mile and flattening near
junction at Bridgeport to 30 feet per mile.
The width of prism of road in excavations'
is 14 feet and on embankments 12 feet.
On the whole line there will only be re
quired nine trussed bridges from 80 to 140
feet spans. The bridge at Mount Dallas is
designated to be a deck bridge—the cars to
run on top of it, 40 feet above low water. It
will have central opening of 140 feet spanning
the rtferi Klid two wing - spans Of 80l feet emh,
affording abundant waterway for the extraor
dinary freshets which are sometimes so des
tructive along this river. The cove, creek
bridge is a through bridge of 100 feet 'span.
The bridge at Juniata river crossing near
Bedford is to be similar to Cove creek bridge
with the addition of a short wing trustle to
give free vent to waters in floods. The bridge
at Presbyterian Church it designed to be 140
feet span with trussed or tresseled approaches
to accommodate the somewhat shifting char
acter of river channel at this place. The
bridge on Buffalo creek is to be 80 feet span,
two bridges on Little Will's creek of 100 feet
spans, and one bridge over Big Will's creek of
two spans of 100 feet each.
The superstructure of these bridges is to be
on the Howe Truss plan, with dimensions en
largetiitti ilietatithi.iMareasediteight of loco
motives, giving the road substantial struct-

The design is to make it permanent and sub
stantial in all its details, opening a way over
which passengers and freight can be trans
ported safely, promptly and economically.
The field work of preliminary survey began
at Bedford the 19th of Augnst last. Maps,
profiles and estimates were' prepared covering
30 miles of extended lines, for the advertised
day of letting, 'October 1, 1810. Yotreengin•
eces estimate for the graduation,' masonry
and bridging on thd 23 2-10 miles dr" road
from Bedford to Bridgeport, by the adopted
"Iran Ore Route,n was $106;938.37—0r at the
rate of $4,609.41 per mile.

On the 15th of October ground was broken

are now at work on the road nearly three hun
