PC E8

On the topic of D&H power, was there any specific power assigned by division?

Re: Rt 9. rail bridge Round Lake

I don't know what that pier is to which I alluded. This pier: https://www.flickr.com/photos/63051795@N00/5942034804" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; and I have no idea what it's for either.
