The same trip is still done by VIA but the rails now end at Jonquière, about 10 kilometres (16 miles) short of Chicoutimi. Roberval Saguenay and RS3 locomotive cross a concrete bridge over a small set of falls, near Chicoutimi QC (now Saguenay) in the late 70s, outbound with aluminum ore (bauxite) from their dock at Grande Baie (Port Alfred) to the smelter at Arvida on one of their frequent runs.

The bridge replaced an adjacent almost centenary wood bridge which had rotted.

The metal structures (since removed), were used to support the catenary for early operation of CN electric engines operating through the Mount Royal Tunnel on the other side of the station. This large heavy bridge is an upgrade from the decades-old swing bridge behind the engine, briefly featured in the 1965 National Film Board movie "The Railrodder" as Buster Keaton makes a symbolic entry in the Montreal area within the movie, on the way to the West Coast. v=Eiqqxy Ze DXoas All the area under the bridges has now been reclaimed into green space and integrated into the Lachine Canal National Historic Site.

CN Geeps 41 on a runpast in front of Montmorency Falls during a St Lawrence Valley Railway Society CRHA excursion in the late 1970s Located just a few minutes from downtown Quebec City, half times higher than Niagara Falls and 150ft (45.7m) wide.

Magnification of a crossbuck near there on Google Street View, has put the area around MP 75.83 CN Joliette Sub.

When the NTR became absorbed in the Canadian National System in 1920, the Cap Rouge Trestle became CNR property and still in steady use today.

It spans 3,335 feet (about 1.1 km), with an average of 172 feet (about 53 m) above ground.

The Harstone trestle is being studied for removal, replacement or refurbishment.

This bridge, constructed in 1922, is one of the few remaining traces of the historic Port Arthur, Duluth and Western (Pee Dee) Railway.
