Canadian Pacific FA2 4051 passes under London's Sarnia Road bridge in May of 1964, leading a freight with an RS10 and FB1 trailing under the tell-tales. The Sarnia Road bridge was a single lane  structure that had sharp turns leading up to it, and was major bottle neck. It was built in the 1880s crossing CP's Windsor Sub at Mile 3.0 in the west end of London, and was replaced by a modern concrete bridge in 2011.

  1. Stunning image, Bill. Yer outdoing yerself again.:o)

  2. Wowee Bill, another outstanding shot. One would think the telltales would be farther from the bridge! The bridge lasted an incredible 102 years in that location.

  3. Just amazing. I’m also surprised it lasted until 2011…
