Do any of you know how far into Cleveland the 6' A&GW track extended? The Are there photos of the dual gauge in Cleveland?

The A&GW reached Cleveland via the Cleveland and Mahoning RR, which was leased.

Poors Manual of 1873 indicates that the C&M RR had a 3rd rail from Leavittsburg Ohio
to Cleveland.

There are dual gauge photos, but I have seen none identified as being in Cleveland.
