West Falls is perhaps a railroad location. West Falls is in Philadelphia. There are two railroad bridges at this location.

The Philadelphia and Reading Railroad, Schuylkill River Viaduct, also called the Reading Railroad Bridge and the Falls Rail Bridge, is a stone arch bridge that carries rail traffic over the Schuylkill River at Falls of Schuylkill in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Philadelphia & Reading Railroad's second bridge at West Falls complements the adjacent Falls Bridge (1854) in both appearance and operation; together they form a wye to simplify train movements into downtown Philadelphia. This bridge incorporated an 80'-long stone arch span, the P&R's longest at the time of its construction and retains its original wrought-iron plate girders.
