I think it could be "AK" draw on the Staten Island Railroad (formerly B&O, later operated by NYS&W, now operated by Conrail). This bridge crosses the Arthur Kill between Elizabeth and Staten Island.

I believe it was constructed in the 1950's. It was out of service for about 10 years and after a government funded rehabilitation the bridge is again in service. Primary freight customers on Staten Island are the Port Authority's container terminal at Howland Hook and the NYC trash loadout at Fresh Kills landfill.

Here is a photo taken a few months ago by my son Andrew of a double stack train crossing this bridge from NJ to NY
