LC&M - Mill Brook Bridge

Photos 

IMG_3360 | by Russ Nelson

Lake Champlain and Moriah Railroad. Went up to an iron mine out of Port Henry. Multiple branches at the end, both to reach different parts of the mine, and because they ended up mining out from underneath the railroad and had to relocate. Found this bridge on the aerial photos north of CR-4 out of Port Henry.
