I have gotten some recent PM questions about air draft clearances in the Erie Canal. So for those interested this very old RR bridge was one of the lowest clearances we saw between Cayuga Lake and Fairport. If I can recall correctly, this one was between Lyons, NY & Palmyra. For perspective, our bow rail is about 5 feet above the waterline.

The other low bridge was the lift bridge in Fairport
