Ed Lewis, a veteran of the short line railroad industry and a well known author and photographer, has died. His railroad career spanned 45 years and included terms at Long Island RR, Arcade & Attica RR, Providence & Worcester RR, Strasburg RR and Lamoille Valley RR.

He served as president of the Aberdeen & Rockfish RR from 1987 until his retirement in 2007. Ed was a well-respected leader in the short line railroad industry and authored several publications including “The American Shortline Railway Guide”, “The Road of Personal Service – A Centennial History” (co-authored with Jim Wrinn) and “Wellsville, Addison & Galeton Railroad – The Sole Leather Line”. His photos of short lines have appeared in many publications.

When I joined the railroad industry over thirty years ago Ed was "Mr. Short Line" and was one of the first to reach out and make me feel welcome. I felt honored to count him as a friend. He will be missed.

- Alan Maples

Are original bridge designs keep by the RR or the state? We had some questions on one of the bridges over the Lamoille. I found some history but it was limited.

The exCentral Vermont bridge the LVRC used near Cambridge Junction will be replaced with a new higher bridge for the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail:

That's the smaller bridge next to highway 15. I've been looking for information on the curved bridge that spans the Lamoille.

I have a pic from eBay that shows the LVRC flanger coupled to IREX #14 which looks to be a 44 tonner.

Did the LVRC ever have #14 on their property?

I posted the pic on the LVRC Facebook page.
