On this sunny spring day in April, 2011 we explored and enjoyed the view of the bridge that has stood like a sentinel over the Sissiboo River river for nearly a century. The Weymouth Rotary Trestle Train Bridge was built in 1914. It is now slated for demolition along with two other train bridges in western Nova Scotia. This bridge was a rotary bridge that could be opened to let the tall ships through. You turned a crank manually and the bridge spun around to let the ships pass to unload & unload their cargo such as tea, spices and molasses. Weymouth actually used to be called Weymouth Bridge.
