Watch an amazing video that shows trains crossing the trestle, images of the trestle from the 1800s and the demolition of the wooden structure in 2012. Posted on youtube by: David Othen
The video shows the trestle being load tested and undergoing maintenance as well as views of the trestle from both the cab of a locomotive and from a passenger car. The S&H closed in 2004 and we see the trestle being demolished in 2012 so that the road could be widened.
The rolling stock from the Salem & Hillsborough Railroad is now housed at the New Brunswick Railway Museum in Hillsborough NB Canada.
