Photo #2 is the Lyman Viaduct, not the Rapallo. The postcard dates from c. 1905 and mistakenly places the structure in East Hampton, rather than Colchester.

Does anyone know if when the rr filled in under the track, did they leave the Viaduct intact, as was normally the case with wooden trestles, or did they remove the cast iron Viaduct? If they removed it, was it relocated elsewhere?

Thanks
