Now mile 109.4 on CP’s Taber sub. (extended west 8.0 miles onto the former Crowsnest sub. to the new Lethbridge Yard from old Lethbridge), the long Oldman River bridge also passes over the 1 Ave. SW exit from highway 3, and on Monday 1974-10-14 it carried an eastbound wayfreight with ex Quebec North Shore & Labrador GP9 PNC 122 for power towards the yard in town.

The construction-era (1897-1898) line west from Lethbridge avoided the immense bridge by swinging considerably south of today’s line to cross the Saint Mary River on a substantial wooden trestle then the Belly River on another to avoid the Oldman River, then trending northwest to join today’s line at Fort Macleod.  A great map showing that is at  Atlas of Alberta Railways Maps .
