BNSF and UP roll over the Cuyahoga- and Herbie
Author: EL833

We see NS train #206 eastbound on the former Nickel Plate bridge that spans the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, Ohio. Down below the Herbert C Jackson unloads stone. Run through BNSF and UP power are fairly common on this line. The HCJ was right up to the W 3rd St lift bridge (my perch), hence the steering pole being turned inward. 05-28-2023.

Neat framing and thanks for pointing out the folde Steering Pole. I never knew the lake boats had them but on the snaking rivers off the Great Lakes I'm certain it is a great navigation assist.

Steering poles were/are generally found on the classic style (forward pilot house) boats.

Can someone please explain what that steering pole does? Google wasn't much help.
