    Talk about luck. Less than four hours after UPS announced their image change at a press conference in Atlanta, I caught two freshly painted 48-footers on film, complete with new logo, slogan and color (Rock Island's leg of the "Golden Comet", passing through Tucumcari NM).

    Me too please!

    Yes Please...

    I've been looking for pictures of the "High Level" 109th street bridge in Edmonton too.... Especially with the waterfall going...

    I lived with my brother on the Strathcona (South) side of Edmonton for a few months back in '86. Only a couple of blocks from the bridge.

    He's moved to Lotus Land (Vancouver), and I'm back in T.O.. Shoulda taken those pictures myself, but I was young and foolish.
    :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Tin, don't have any pics of the waterfall. If you want those, it'll have to wait until after Canada Day (the next time it's turned on I think), but if you want pics of it without, just let me know. I live like five minutes from it.

    PS - I don't know of any trestles around this vicinity.

    109th street bridge...

    Thanks Mike,

    I was on 107th Ave at the corner of 108th St. A nice walk to the University in good weather. Worked at a school aged daycare on 104th or 103rd (can't remember exactly.) next to a school. Everything was in walking distance. Lunch at A&W at the West Gate Mall...

    There are a couple of us looking for pictures of the High Level Bridge. It's a Through Girder Bridge if my terminology is correct.

    Post the pictures in the All Sorts of Bridges Thread....

    You can get some clear shots of the bridge from different angles now, before the trees get leafy. (That gives you until almost the end of May...) And some more pictures this summer when the Waterfall is turned on... I would imagine that the Waterfall would get turned on for Victoria (May 24) Day.

    Spring in Edmonton is beautiful, but it doesn't last long...

    I don't think they turn it on for Victoria Day. My recollection is Canada Day, Klondike Days, the marathon, and maybe the August long weekend and Labor Day.

    Hey, you must have funny waterfalls in Canada which can be turned on and off! Ours are flowing (falling?) all the time! :D :D :D

    I think I know exactly which bridge Interurben is asking about, and it is the "Mother Of All Bridges" out in this area.

    I will post multiple pictures as soon as possible.:)
