Steam Saturday: 4070 From the Route 82 Bridge

The steam division of the wayback machine has us on the Ohio Route 82 bridge in Brecksville.

The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad was then known as the Cuyahoga Valley Line and the motive power was former Grand Trunk Western 2-8-2 light Mikado No. 4070 operated by the Midwest Railway Preservation Society.

At the time this image was made the bridge had sidewalks on both sides.

The top image was made on the north side of the bridge of the southbound train. The bottom image was, of course, on the other side showing it going away.

It was made before the site has been transformed into a parking lot with a station although back in the day the Baltimore & Ohio had a depot here.

The bridge over the Cuyahoga River was on Station Road. The bridge is still in place and now part a trail leading from the Towpath Trail to the station.
