Images are from April 2011.. . "Built in 1929 on the site of two previous rail trestles dating as far back as 1871, the trestle spans 1300 meters of the Kettle Creek valley at the west end of the city. The towering structure was built to withstand the weight of two full steam locomotives on separate tracks, a major engineering achievement of its time. Originally built for the Michigan Central Railway, which traversed Southwestern Ontario from Detroit to Buffalo, the trestle and line were most recently owned by CN Rail which declared it surplus. "
