Nickel Plate Road [Norfolk & Western]
Cleveland, Ohio (BD Yard)
August 28, 1970

This is what remained of the Nickel Plate's "BD" Yard in 1970, as seen from Ohio Route 43. Below, the Nickel Plate main can be seen curving off to the left on its journey over the Cleveland Flats via the great steel viaduct. The lift bridge visible at the far left is the West Third Street Bridge, not a railroad bridge. The giant highway bridge across the Cleveland Flats is Interstate 90.
