Here is the S-Span leading to the bridge crossing the Mohawk River.  This is where the SRC left Aqueduct Road. The Troy & Schenectady Railroad passed under the SRC in this location. (Len Garver Collection)

Here's a postcard of the bridge at Aqueduct. This view looking east towards Alplaus

Here is a car returning from Saratoga and crossing the Mohawk River Trestle.  AT one time, this bridge was the longest trolley bridge in North America.  It was removed in 1943, two years after the abandonment of the Saratoga Line.  This photo was taken on 9/14/40.
