Here is another abandoned train bridge along the same CNR line that I have posted about before. The rails were ripped out decades ago but the bridge is still safe to cross. I just love these old bridges, to think how many times trains rumbled across them bringing their freight to their locations all across Ontario and Quebec. This beauty spans the Mistango River which flows northeast out of the mighty Big Abitibi Lake. Even after the rails were taken out it you were still able to cross it with a vehicle but it has since been barricaded off with cement pillars and barriers for obvious liability reasons. I have included in my pictures an old newspaper picture of a truck crossing it.
I think the obvious hazard here is that there are no railings on these things. Now you have to be doing something pretty stupid to actually fall off. Take your time and you won`t have a problem. I did notice a couple of railways ties that were out of place but it`s nothing to get too excited about you won`t fall through.
