I remember when the NASA barge would come up the Clear Creek channel back in the 70's to deliver some piece of simulation equipment. The drawbidge (and swingbridge) at Kemah would have to be opened to it's maximun reach and then the big covered barge would inch it's way through. It took close to 30 minutes to complete the task, as it barely fit through. The barge had a white bubbletop that covered the contents (top secret we all presumed).

Wow! I remember the old draw bridge and swing bridge RR track.
