Grand Junction Railway

Grand Junction Bridge – Indian River

The Grand Junction Railway was built in 1880 from Belleville, ON to Peterborough, ON. The station stops of Hastings and Campbellford are on this line. They were merged into the Midland Railway in 1882, then to the Grand Trunk in 1884, then finally abandoned in 1987. This fine old bridge across the Indian River in the Keene area, is a picturesque spot and a great place to bicycle or like me, walk your dog. As a side note, there is a culvert just north of this location, running under County Rd 38, that apparently is the largest culvert in Ontario. Trains never used it but bicycles do.
