The bridge, which designed by John E.

The James River Railway Bridge, also known as the CSX A-Line bridge, is one of many picturesque places in Richmond that span the James.

Its images often are used for posters, postcards, T-shirts and other items to illustrate the beauty of the river. The bridge, designed by John E. Greiner and built in 1919 for the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad, is now part of CSX lines and is located between the Powhite Parkway, shown in this drone photo in the background, and the Boulevard Bridge, also known as the Nickel Bridge.

The sunset over this arched bridge on the James is one of the magnificent views that Richmond-area residents are fortunate to have.

Sailors rested aboard their small boat at sunset near New Point Comfort Natural Area Preserve in Mathews County, Va., on Tuesday, August 23, 2022. Waiting for sunset at Observation Walkway at New Point Comfort Preserve in Mathews County, I was able to observe my surrounds for a few hours with peeks of turtles and crabs swimming around, some big fishes (no idea of what they were) jumping out of the water and great blue herons flying near me. Mathew, the second smallest county in Virginia, is boarded with Gloucester County and surrounded most part by shoreline with Mobjack Bay, Chesapeake Bay, North River and Piankatank River. Mathews County is one of great day trip destinations from Richmond areas with the charming downtown, beautiful waterfronts, and historical lighthouses. By the way, there are zero traffic lights in the county and according to the Mathews County pocket travel guide, John Lennon and Yoko Ono once owned properties there.
