I don't know anything about that bridge specifically, but the freight rail infrastructure in Philly is known to be shit generally. And a lot of oil travels right through the city and right by the river.
A CSX train carrying crude oil and sand derailed on a bridge over the Schuylkill River in University City overnight.


The two-locomotive, 101-freight-car train was traveling from Chicago to Philadelphia, according to CSX. Seven freight cars -- six containing crude oil and one containing sand -- derailed, the company said.
