CNE - Tioronda Bridge
Posted August 5, 2016, by Bernard Rudberg (BRudberg [at] optonline [dot] net)

This line was built by the Dutchess & Columbia RR, a predecessor to the ND&CRR. It went into service in 1869 and was torn out in 1916 after the Central New England Rwy took over. The steel was salvaged for WW 1 production.
