LC&M - Whitney Street Arch

Photos 

IMG_3321 | by Russ Nelson

The Lake Champlain and Moriah Railroad came off the Delaware and Hudson on the south side of Port Henry, NY. Went to an iron mine up in the hills, with many spurs and sidings built and lifted as needed by the railroad. This bridge goes over Whitney Street.
