A few drone views of the Blende River Viaduct, more commonly referred to as the Pass Lake Trestle, which is a former railway structure located northwest of the community of Pass Lake, ON. These photos were taken while capturing footage for a video on the viaduct.

Built by Canadian Northern Railway (CNoR) in 1912, its construction only took an amazing 8 months to complete. It was situated at Milepost 123.4 of the CNoR-Nipigon Subdivision/Canadian National Railways-Dorion Subdivision and Milepost 173.1 of the later Canadian National Railway Kinghorn Subdivision. At 2258 feet long and 130 feet high, it is the largest railway trestle in central Canada. It saw it last regular train in May 2005.
