I found an old photo of this bridge, the Fraser River Bridge, taken while under construction that was dated 1930. In this 1995 photo, southbound BCR 4615 and 742 are approaching Lillooet as they cross the bridge at Polley with a loaded sulphur train. It's unfortunate that since CNs take over of BC Rail in the early 2000s, courtesy the B.C. Government, that what was once a world class railway experience, has disappeared forever.

  1. Thanks for the comment Arnold. In the satellite image you’ll see a dead end road and I probably walked to the left along the ridge to get this photo.

  2. Oh, thats wild. I’d love to have been sitting up on the rocks (?) watching this roll by.
