18.8: Railway Line Abandonment Near Treesbank, 1947

This large-scale photo taken in 1947 shows the CP line 1 between Stockton (off the photo to the east) and Treesbank (off the photo to the west) where it crosses the north-flowing Souris River 2. The shadow of the bridge platform and of three supporting pillars 3 can be seen northeast of the actual bridge. Note that on flatland to the west, fences/hedges have been constructed 4 to protect against snowdrifts.
