The Connecticut River flows between Amtrak’s distant Old Saybrook, Conn., shore and the near shore at the railroad’s Old Lyme drawbridge. Railroaders call it “Conn.” In the water straight ahead and on both sides of the granite supports holding up the bridge, heavy wood, creosoted fenders prevent vessels from crashing into the bridge structure.
