I wish I'd found that photo; would have saved a lot of typing.

I posted the question in the New Haven (Fallen Flags) forum, and Noel Weaver replied that it did. His full response is in the Poughkeepsie Bridge question thread, dated March 21.

Here's information about the Poughkeepsie Bridge. viewtopic.php?f=128&t=22256&start=0

Interesting for me because I signaled L&HR trains at Belvidere from 1960 to 64. All of that traffic went to or from Maybrook where the New Haven took it east, across the bridge.
