Description

The little shanty below is the operators' refuse at C&P Crossing. The designation "C&P" stems from the fact that the line of the Pennsylvania which bisects the NYC at this point was originally the Cleveland and Pittsburgh Rail Road before it was leased by the PRR in 1860. Track identities here are as follows, from top to bottom abreast of the shanty: an NYC lead from the Lakefront line at Double Track on the right to a mail and express storage yard beyond the bridge on the left; The Lakefront north (main) track; the Lakefront south (running) track, crossed by the westbound PRR main; an NYC lead into the old Lakefront Depot, crossed by the eastbound PRR main; another NYC lead into the Lakefront Depot; and, immediately below, PRR tracks leading into the Lakefront Depot to a connect with the NYC at West Third Street, a stone's throw to the west. The 660-HP Alco switcher is shoving a cut of mail and express cars into the Depot, about which more will be said in the succeeding footnote.
