The description states:

The Montreal River trestle, a breathtaking crossing at Mileage 92 north of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. – Algoma Central Railway, Agawa Canyon Tour

–Such tours through forested areas are common even today, particularly during the Autumn when the trees change color. Also visible in the background is a dam and hydroelectric plant built on the Montreal River. The four engines in use indicate a very long train of passenger coaches.

This image likely dates from the 1960s, when the tourist service started.
