Crossing the old Michigan Central/CASO bridge high over the Niagara River, Conrail GE's 2865, 2763 and 1910 lead train "BUCP" (Buffalo-CP) from the US into Canada on the Conrail Canada Division. This location was once known as "Suspension Bridge" in old Penn Central timetables.

As most on here know, CN and CP bought the old ex-PC/NYC/MCRR CASO line from Conrail in the mid-80's (becoming parts of the CP Hamilton Sub and CN CASO Sub), and it experienced a slow decline in the following years. The line through the nearby Clifton Hill area of Niagara Falls (and the bridge here) were abandoned by CP in 2001. While the track was taken up, the bridge still remains - blocked off and unused due to being too costly to demolish.
