Be careful of the RR bridge and contact the bridge tender 30-40 min before you get to the bridge. In 2006 coming back from NYC the bridge was open and I made a run for it. Suddently the bridge started to come down, I had enough time to come around. I then contacted the bridge tender (I was told that he was in an office in Philadelphia) he said that a train was coming and the train had the right away. He held the bridge down for 45 minutes before the train showed up. It only took 5 minutes for the train to pass....... We were dealyed an hr by the time the bridge was up.
