Nickel Plate Road [Norfolk & Western]
Cleveland, Ohio
August 28, 1970

Here on the west side of the Cuyahoga River Alco no. 2855 and an unidentified GP lead a westbound Norfolk & Western freight through Cleveland, Ohio on the former Nickel Plate. This train has just finished crossing the Cleveland Flats on the Nickel Plate's massive viaduct and vertical lift bridge; the overpass and truss bridge in the distance cross Willey Avenue and Abbey Avenue, respectively. This view is from the U.S. State Route 42 (25th Street) bridge looking northeast.
