    NS Maumee River Swing Bridge
    Posted December 8, 2013, by J. G (jcg [dot] apollosoyuz [at] gmail [dot] com)

    This bridge is part of the old Lake Shore & Michigan Southern rail road's Cleveland-Chicago main-line, which would become part of the New York Central system's "Water-Level Route."
