Cash Creek Trestle

Paju Station Cash Creek Trestle Hogarth Station

The Cash Creek Trestle (or more likely Gash Creek) is located just north of Hogarth Station at Milepost 58.7/108.4. On an early Canadian Northern Railway map and a CN profile map, the stream is referred to as Gash Creek.

The bridge is 475 feet long, 93 feet high and its deck plate girder spans rest on 4 steel towers. Because of its height, it can be classified as a viaduct. Costing $112,000 ($1.7 million today), it was opened for traffic in 1924 (shortly after nationalization) and replaced an earlier wood trestle. It is the second highest structure on the line (behind the Blende River Viaduct) and the third longest (Viaduct and the Nipigon River Bridge).
