    Thanks for the Pix...

    I Googled for the bridge, but all I got were some very long shots that weren't very clear.

    The Shots you have are much better.

    I look forward to seeing more.

    It's even more beautiful than I remember....

    Thanks again.

    Looooooooooong Bridge...

    Here's a shot of the long trestle I think Chris asked about. I had to take the shot from about half a mile away, and even then had to splice two shots together...badly, I might add. When the snow melts, I'll see if I can get closer, and get better pictures. Right now, I suspect that even with 4WD, I'd be getting quite stuck.

    The long trestle was photographed from a little short range-road type bridge.

    Sadly, the builder's Plate did not indicate WHEN it was built.

    The reason I was intending to wait until summer for these shots? These pictures were taken at twilight, and the light will be much better during the summer.

    Hope these help a little, at least.

    At one time I lived in Saskatoon and took this picture of the CP bridge across the South Saskatchewan River.

    There is a pedestrian section on the bridge but what an experience to be halfway across and a train comes by. You just stop and hang on to the railing with the wind and noise blasting you.

    This old trestle was near Rocky Mountain House in Alberta. I took these next few photos to see how a trestle was built
