Remarks & Notes 
Canadian Pacific’s Royal Canadian Pacific luxury train crosses the massive bridge at Lethbridge, Alberta, on CP’s Crownest Pass route on September 15, 2002. The huge structure, commonly known as Lethbridge Viaduct or High Level Bridge, was built by CP between 1907 and 1909 to replace an smaller, older wooden bridge located on a more circuitous and steep former route across the valley. The bridge is 1,624 meters (5,328 feet) long (yes, over a mile long!) and is 96 meters (314 feet) above Oldman River. It is the largest railway structure in Canada and the largest bridge of its type in the world.
