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.

GTP-Lake Superior Branch MP 194.8

From the Offbeat Series.

This bridge was originally part of the Lake Superior Branch of the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway (GTP). Located at Milepost 194.8, it took a year to build and was opened in November, 1908. In 1906, GTP signed an agreement with the City of Fort William (now Thunder Bay) to allow vehicles utilize the bridge on cantilevered spans built on to the main structure.

In the past, the bridge would open regularly to allow ships to pass. However, in recent years it has remained closed with no traffic on that portion of the river, last opening around 2007 or 2008.

In 1915, the Lake Superior Branch was folded into Canadian Government Railways (CGR) and became part of Canadian National Railways in 1918. The line currently ties in with CN’s Kashabowie SD.
