GTW North Telegraph Road Overpass
Posted July 23, 2020, by Mike Kerkau (mjkerkau [at] gmail [dot] com)

Grand Trunk Railroad, for all intents and purposes, has been formally supplanted by its controller Canadian National, a process that appears to have started in December 1991. It's worth reading to try and make sense of everything: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Trunk_Western_Railroad

The bottom line for this line (along with the nearby Oakland Avenue crossing), ultimately, is that CN still operates it today.
