This is the Brownsville (B.C.) - Everett crossing the Nooksack River in Ferndale Wa. This train had just cleared U.S. customs about an hour before the picture was taken.
For a northbound view of this consist, please see it under Canadian frieght trains as 'Gyproc'.

So this is CTC Board World HQ. Wonder how long it has been since the bridge opened?
Been there lots of times in the past, but never seen or heard of that bridge being opened.
I've wondered the same actually. It appears to be rusted shut ;-) The main street of vibrant Ferndale crosses the river just out of the picture on the left and the I-5 is about a half mile upstream on the right. Those highway bridges are not made for river traffic. Must be 40 years since it last opened.
