VIA 24 is just a few minutes into its voyage to Quebec City as it crosses the Lachine Canal just south of Central Station. The bridge to the left used to be CN's entry point to the Port of Montreal. It has been out of use about 20 years and is locked in place. CN accesses the Port of Montreal through a newer bridge a bit to the east. Behind that bridge is CN Wellington tower, also out of use.

  1. This is a neat location. Nicely done Michael

  2. Thanks, it’s a great location in the morning when you can shoot trains with the downtown Montreal in the background and in the afternoon shots like this looking the other way.

  3. ..And the bridge on which the train is used to be a lifting one,the towers were cut up in 1967.

  4. Real nice, Michael. Love all the angles.

  5. That’s a great spot, and a great shot!
