CSX/CSLR(NYC) Marcy Trestle over Cuyahoga River near Cleveland, OH

(Bridge Hunter; Historic Bridges; FlickrSatellite, I also noticed the CanalWay Center near the Ohio & Erie Canal)

CSLR = Cleveland Short Line Railroad, NYC subsidiary

This trestle is another reminder that, unlike Illinois and Indiana, Ohio has some serious hills near the Great Lakes. (Ballville Dam was another.)

While looking at the satellite image, I noticed that there are pipeline bridges on either side of this trestle. The straight "brown line" was the Ohio & Erie Canal. Thus the trail name of "Towpath Trail."

The pipelines are a reminder that Rockefeller started Standard Oil in Cleveland. Tim caught the pipelines in this photo.
