Brief History of the Kinsol Trestle The Kinsol Trestle also known as the Koksilah River Trestle is a wooden railway crossing of the (you guessed it) the Koksilah river. Completed in 1920, it’s dimensions are 44m (144 ft.) high and 188m (617 ft.) long making it the longest wooden trestle in the Commonwealth and one of the highest wooden trestles in the world. The rail line was started in 1911 by the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway (CNPR) and while it was designed by railroad engineers it was built by local farmers and loggers with investment funds from the Canadian Western Lumber Company which was the largest lumber company in the world at that time. The last train to cross the Trinsol was in 1979 and the Trestle was abandoned 1 year later.
