SkyTrain does well on the long, fairly steep ascents and descents involved in the current river crossing, and speeds are markedly faster than on the high level water crossings of older rail systems.  This photo shows a train on the New Westminster side of the water.  The highway bridge is beyond, and further still is the low-level railroad bridge.
