Railway suspension bridge at Niagara

Robert F. Legget; Railways of Canada, Douglas &McIntyre 1973

A Great Western train crosses the suspension bridge at Niagara Falls, year unknown. The crossing must have been done slowly. I expect the flexibility of the bridge could start some frightening wave action.
Trains across the World; Octopus Books 1972
Train crossing the bridge. 1859

One of the more interesting stories regarding the bridge is that it was the site of the death of former US baseball star Ed Delahanty in 1903 - the exact circumstances of how he left a train and ended up in the river are still a mystery.

I did not know that story. I'll look it up!
