This photo was of course taken many years after the Ashtabula Bridge Disaster. However, you can see the pump house to the left of the new cement arch bridge, which was the location many passengers were taken the night of the disaster.

LS & MS Bridge Gang Crew 1860 -1870

It is possible this was the bridge crew that built the all iron Ashtabula Bridge under the supervision of A.L. Rogers. We wonder if A.L. Rogers could be pictured here with his men?

LS & MS Engine

This is a LS & MS Rogers Locomotive near a coal shoot loader. Notice the diamond style smoke stack on this beautiful engine. It is also interesting to note that it was Amasa Stone, president of the LS & MS railroad who was the first to burn coal in steam engines. This saved the railroad almost 16%- 25% in fuel costs! It was not long after Stones success and savings other railroads soon followed his lead. (Photo from the collection of Fritz Kuenzel)
