CP Rail Farnham Turn North Troy Bridge Move March '88

CP Rail's westbound Farnham Turn executes the time-consuming move at North Troy Vermont in March 1988. Lead RS18u 1841 vaults the Missisquoi River to clear the bridge. In the next photo, the second unit takes the train over the bridge. The bridge had developed a weight restriction allowing only one locomotive at a time. Eventually this span was replaced with a new steel span.
