BRIDGES

CN Paynes Sub St Thomas to Glencoe Ontario

 The CN Paynes Subdivision is located between Glencoe and St. Thomas.

 It is the former CN Chatham Subdivision. There are four trestles plus 2 smaller bridges on the line
     At Glencoe, the CN Paynes Subdivision Jct.'s with the CN Chatham Subdivision and at St. Thomas, it connects to the CN/Trillium Cayuga Spur (formerly the CN Cayuga Subdivision).

Beautiful sunny day and lots of date nails still in place. Oldest I found was 1930 but lots of 1937, 1942 & 1944. Looks as if the last major work done  on the line was 1966
