8/1 - Dredging Operations in Buffalo - Brian Wroblewski

Kurt R. Luedtke bringing an empty dump scow through the CSX (ex New York Central) River Bridge on her way up to the dredge rig.

CSX's CP Draw (ex Buffalo Creek Railroad) being raised for the tug & her barge. The bridge to the right in the photo is the Norfolk Southern's (ex Nickel Plate) rolling lift bridge that is permanently raised in the up position. This is the only remaining one of only two rolling lift bridges in Buffalo. The dredge rig can be seen to the extreme left.

The tug heading downriver with a loaded scow under the escort of Luedtke's small workboat and heading through the reach above the old DL&W Buffalo River Drawbridge, just below South Park Ave.

The tug and her barge clearing through the draw and starting the turn to port for the reach heading towards the Republic Steel Turning Basin. This is 6 miles upriver from the lake but only 3 miles by land.
