Prototype Corner - A Golfers' Overpass

CN 5662 heads north on the Halton Subdivision in Halton Hills on June 27, 2009.  In the background stands a structure which allows golfers to enjoy some periodic railfanning.

I was recently reading the Kalmbach publication Model Railroading: The Ultimate Guide.  In the article "T-Trak Tales" one of the modules depicted an underpass which had been constructed for the convenience of golfers using a course split by a BNSF mainline.  This made me think of this golfers' overpass I had photographed near #10 Sideroad in Halton Hills.  It existed to safely allow duffers to get from one side of the CN Halton Subdivision to the other.  I have also photographed a similar, albeit more substantial, structure which crosses both CN and CP main lines in Port Hope.
