  1. Great photo! Love that you can see the old station and grain silos in the distance. Curious….was there always an overpass for 52, or level crossing existed one point in time?

  2. Fantastic image!

  3. Not sure Todd. Earliest aerial shot I can find is from 1959 showing this bridge. The Dundas Sub is in a bit of a cut through this stretch. It is possible it has always been an overpass.
