CNR freight movements were manned by "Bridge" crews on a separate seniority list and they worked only between Niagara Falls, Ontario and Niagara Falls, New York. This practice continued well into the diesel era. Freight service has all been rerouted via Fort Erie and as of 2013 only a daily Amtrak train uses the bridge on its way to and from New York City and Toronto. The CNR Fort Erie yard and shops have all been demolished as well.
