Yesterday we went out to the Lake Shore Railway Association on State Route 18 in Wellington for a special photo opportunity.
We took a fall foliage ride on the Lorain & West Virginia Railway and got to ride in the caboose!
Chuck was sitting in the cupola for this shot of the floating bridge over the Black River. It was built in 1907.
It doesn’t really float on the water. The car attendant wasn’t sure why it was called a floating bridge.
I couldn’t find an explanation online. It probably has to do with the way it is constructed.
I was standing outside on the caboose platform for this view as we crossed the Black River.
If my memory serves me correctly, we were 60+ feet above the Black River at this point.
