CN/CM&G Overpass
Posted June 10, 2017, by Patrick Griffith (antennawizard [at] hotmail [dot] com)

The bridges have been removed and the CM&G cut has been filled with ballast rock to support the two CN lines that pass over. All that is still visible is one small corner of the old cement bridge support.
