All Aboard
On Nov. 20 Canadian Pacific Railway completed permanent repairs to the railway bridge over Lyons Creek in Crowsnest Pass. This work was part of the 2015 capital plan and was a result of the 2013 floods. CP is also re-establishing the creek banks as part of this work. The lifting of the bridge deck, which weighs about 50 tonnes, took place at around 5 a.m. and the first trains passed over the completed bridge at about 11 a.m.
