The Lake Shore Electric Railway Trestle
Have you ever noticed the very large concrete structure that crosses Porter Creek and Porter Creek Road in Bay Village's Huntington Reservation? The Lake Shore Electric Railway trestle is one of the few remnants of a bygone era. It once carried the interurban train on its journey from Cleveland to Detroit.
The Lake Shore Railway system serviced Cleveland, Lorain, Sandusky, Norwalk, Fremont, Toledo and Detroit and carried over 5 million passengers per year during its time. It ran from 1901 until 1938, when the popularity of buses and personal automobiles caused its demise.
I love to take photographs and really enjoy photographing Bay Village and surrounding area.
