Having never been to Elmira, I think this might be the same bridge today.....Souther Tier fans and residents, please feel free to correct me!

Wow, that was mostly a lucky guess on my part!  
 
As for the current photo, I'm going to hold back and give others a chance--I'm pretty sure I know this location.

Yes, that is a former Lackawanna bridge.

Not counting the people who I know the correct answer, hopefully it won't take 17 wrong guesses to complete this GTL.................

Yes, the 1913 DL&W station was on Lake Street, where that bare patch of land is alongside the tracks.  The lettering is still faintly visible on the viaducts.

The location is the DL&W crossing over the Lehigh Valley Railroad (Their State Line interlocking) just to the south of Waverly, NY. This bridge and the ROW here was obliterated by construction of NY state route 17.

Here's a good one! Might be an easy one who is very familiar with the area.

No one? Nothing?
 
Will give it a little more time and then try to drop a hint.

It's a westbound movement and we're in the Garden State, I'll just toss that in for now.

I am not going to say, because I grew up a town away from here. Great shot though, I've never seen this one!

I had a feeling you would likely know the location. I'll give another day for guesses and if no one else guesses it, I'll reveal.

Not seeing any more nibbles on this GTL, so I'll disclose the location and details.
 
The location is at the Boonton, NJ freight house, and the info on the back states this is a "Westbound Hopper Extra". The power is a doubleheader of Schenectady-built 4-8-4's. The leader is #1609 followed by the 1621.  
 
Photo taken in April 1939 and I **believe** this photo may have been taken by the father of former DL&W engineer Jack Emerick. The reason I say this is because I purchased a book authored by and signed by Mr. Emerick and this photo was on the inside next to the title-page. The way I understand it, said book was originally given to his late sister as a gift and I purchased it on ebay from the estate sale.
 
Anyway, it's a really cool photo I'm proud to have in my collection!  
 
Charlie

Well, that sure explains why I've never seen this shot before! Nice catch, Charlie!
 
Without going there and standing in a lot of snow to recreate this photo (not to mention tresspassing!), here is a current shot of the building, looking east as in the photo, but on the non-track (truck delivery) side from a Google Image search.
