Another Bridge

There were numerous bridges across the Fraser River as originally two different companies built the rail lines. The first always took the easiest side of the gorge crossing the river whenever necessary. The second company had to use the opposite side of the gorge which cost a great deal more because of the more difficult terrain. Now the two companies are merged so the service is much better and safer with east bound going one way and west bound services the other. The view looking towards the front of the train only shows a few of the twenty-two carriages used on our train.
