Pine Creek Grand Trunk RR Crossing

The Grank Trunk Pacific built a large trestle bridge across Pine Creek, just west of Firdale.
Later they rebuilt it a bit to the south and filled it in for stability.

The second crossing took a more southerly route for a few km.



The second crossing, about 200 metres from the first one.

Today it is the main CN / Via Rail  Line, passing through Rivers, Sasktatoon...

The foundations of the first bridge were cut at ground level, but have come out of the swampy ground.
