Train trestles can be seen across Canada and are considered to be quite iconic and a staple of the landscape (in my opinion!). Many are visible along busy highways while some are tucked away where no one but the railway employees can see them. Over my twenty plus years with the railway as a Bridge Engineer, I have had the unique privilege of getting to know many of these trestles intimately, many over 100 years old. The engineered plans, meticulously drafted by hand are works of art in themselves and the detail and skill required to construct them is equally, if not more impressive. This painting is of a trestle just West of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. Perhaps you recognize it!
