Historic Weymouth Train Bridge

Steel girders under the Weymouth Train Bridge.
365 Project - Day 93 - 4/3/11

On this sunny spring day in April we explored and enjoyed the view of a train bridge that has stood like sentinel over the Sissiboo River river for nearly a century. Built in 1914 in Weymouth, Nova Scotia.

It is now slated for demolition along with two other train bridges in western Nova Scotia. This bridge was a rotary bridge that could be opened to let the tall ships through. You turned a crank manually and the bridge spun around to let the ships pass to unload & unload their cargo.

If you missed any of the previous 92 days, just go to my Good Nature Photography website to see every day since January 1, 2011, the beginning of this project.
