CP DRAW in Buffalo, NY, the Buffalo River crossing. The ex-NKP bridge is permanently welded in the up position and the ex-Buffalo Creek bridge still in use by CSX as part of their Chicago main, by NS as a connection between their NKP and Erie lines and B&P to connect NS' ex-PRR line to the B&P yard. CN, South Buffalo and Buffalo Southern also make appearances.

AFTER? If this is "after", I wonder what it looked  like "before"?
