[G2:1480 n=1 size=640]One of the more unique bridges in the Twin Ports is the Oliver Bridge spanning the St. Louis River between Duluth and Oliver (trains on top, autos on the bottom). Here CN manifest train 340 crosses into Wisconsin. This photo spot is easily reached off Wisconsin Highway 105 in Oliver (take County W to Brooklyn Street). There is an open lot that allows good viewing of the bridge. Photo by David Schauer.
