Last week I mentioned the Nicholson Heritage Association and the work on the Nicholson Tourism Center at the Historic DL&W Railroad Station. This week while driving up main street I noticed a huge tractor and trailer with a massive photo of the Nicholson Bridge on both sides of the trailer. It was on Main Street between the Fire Hall and Nicholson Lumber. It was so impressive I had to stop and take a look.
I spoke with Ronald Truesdale the one responsible for this epic idea. He envisioned the idea and then reached out to Marion Sweet President of NHA. He said “It was my idea and I reached out to her for help because she is very knowledgeable with the bridge. I ended up using Josh Stull’s pictures. The trailer is 48 feet long and the name of my company is MR Trucking Co. Inc. we are based here in Nicholson. I have always loved the bridge and have it on our company T-shirts also.” The trailer is his and he pulls it every week hauling bulk potatoes to Frito-Lay in Kirkwood, N.Y.
His wife’s maiden name is Novitch and she has lived here her whole life and comes from a trucking family. Ronald said: “This project was to help the community by bring attention to the bridge and help with donations for the heritage and rail stations.” Wow what an amazing project, Thank you to the Truesdale and Novitch families for such a wonderful contribution!
