  1. Joe, I bet I was no more than 75 ft or so east of the Haulage Rd bridge. I parked to the west of it on the south side and walked along until I felt this was the best focal length to shoot from. Sometimes I would get closer and down the north side and shoot as there was a smaller bridge over the water just west of Iron Bridge, as you know. I remember the pond of critters; but when I was a youngster I lived in Burlington, and we had our own ‘critter pond’ up north of Hwy 5 just off Brant St. One could spend a day enjoying nature. They were really carefree fun times.

  2. Arnold, how far from the bridge over Seaway Haulage Road were you? I crossed that Iron Bridge – or Black Bridge – many times as a kid. Just east of that bridge – on the right – was a BIG pond full of critters.

  3. Thanks, Peter. Daniel…..I didn’t know what it was like around there these days. Appreciate the info. Most places now I wander into seem to be so overgrown compared to former years. The “greening” of the landscape does take place..I guess we just have to look for it.

  4. Very nice, Arnold… two thumbs up!

  5. Love this angle. Believe it or not, there’s still a shootable angle at approximately this spot today (off the ROW of course). I’m not sure how Seaway feels about it, but they’ve never given me issues. I couldn’t find any legible signs indicating I was trespassing.

    I remember standing next to the Iron Bridge when CN 421 went over it one day. It wobbles about as much as its age would indicate. Hopefully future GO upgrades don’t see it being removed. Truss bridges are getting far and few between.
