There are a lot of Parry Sound bridge pictures out there. But unless you have actually been there, it is hard to image by photo how big this trestle really is. It spans 1697 ft crossing the Seguin River, and most of the structure is visible in this shot taken from quite a ways out. The 1908-built landmark is impressive indeed.  On this day, it is getting close to sundown as CP 5549, HLCX 3066, and CP 5694 as train #474 thunder southward en route to Toronto. 
These days, this is part of a shared asset zone, with trains CP and CN running only northward here; and running southbound over the CN line which wanders thru the downtown.

  1. I still believe they should reverse directions every year…for fun….no selfish motivations on my art. :)
