Jimbo So this question was posted some time ago, but it intrigued me. When I (re)started the book, I assumed "Belaire" was Bel Air, California, but the references to the cold of winter and Clevelen's being to the west dispelled that. At a guess, I think this may refer to Bellaire, Ohio, which is across the Ohio River from Wheeling, West Virginia. The B&O Railroad Viaduct there may be the bridge that Rush and his father crossed near the beginning of the book. Maybe.
