MA&N Sugar River Bridge, Leyden (drone video)

I long thought Mohawk, Adirondack & Northern's Sugar River bridge, located in the Town of Leyden, 38 miles north of Utica, would make an excellent subject for a drone video.

Here's my effort from this morning:

It's quite the old bridge - and still quite serviceable.

I worked the Southern Appalachia Railroad Museum charter a few years ago, which was probably the most recent passenger movement across the bridge. Northbound it was also a photo/runby stop. Not good footing for a bunch of old men, for sure.
