Here is a rare c. 1910 post card of a train passing over the single track trestle known as the Lyman Viaduct. It was constructed in 1873 and filled by 1913. The vintage image is followed by some photographs that I took of the Lyman Viaduct last year on Connecticut’s Air Line State Park Trail. One can see vestiges of the old bridge emerging from the gravel.
The Lyman Viaduct, which crosses Dickinson’s Creek (running through via culvert), is located at Colchester, CT, near East Hampton.

The post card was published by T.N. Burns, East Hampton, and made in Germany.
