GTP-Lake Superior Branch MP 188.8 (187.3) I

Video of the former Grand Trunk Pacific Railway-Lake Superior Branch at Thunder Bay, ON. This area with a unique layout was known as the “Moose’s Nose” or “Devil’s Elbow.” Features an all-concrete culvert that was constructed in 1917 before the line was abandoned in 1924. There were two of these structures close to each other, but sadly the western most one has been removed.
