Dupont and Christie Loop, looking south-west - April 30, 1925

Credit Derek Boles -- "The old CPR bridge at the Brick Works with the spindly metal support structure being replaced by the new one with concrete piers in 1928. The new piers were built in the same alignment as the old steel towers. When it came time to replace the spans, a siding was built north of the bridge and a traveling crane was parked there awaiting passage of the morning train to Montreal. The crane was then moved onto the bridge for precisely timed construction work during the next seven hours. In late afternoon, the crane was moved back onto its siding, just in time for the day train from Montreal to thunder down the Don Valley without interruption. This is no longer a CPR "main line" and is now owned by GO Transit. There have been no trains on this line since 2007."
