CN-Graham Subdivision MP 0

Video of the former Canadian National-Graham Subdivision bridge over the Mattawin River near Sistonen’s Corner, ON. This structure opened in 1924 as result of the rerouting of lines following the Canadian Northern-Grand Trunk merger. Canadian National Railways abandoned 26 miles of the GTP grade to the east and used the newly doubled Canadian Northern line (now CN-Kashabowie SD) to this point (Conmee Junction) to access the GTP grade at MP 166.

Active, 1924-1994.
