The Kinsol Trestle was completed by Canadian National Railways in 1920 as part of the “Galloping Goose” rail line. The engineering technology used to build the Kinsol Trestle – the highest and largest surviving timber trestle in Canada and reportedly one of the four largest wooden structures in the world – is representative of how Canadian railways were built to traverse deep ravines.
