I can't speak to the logic behind the Ferguson Bridge. I wasn't here when it was built. I also can't comment on how much of a problem it is when people cut over from Wellington to use the Ferguson bridge when slow trains pass. I think the notion, which i've also heard, that the no-right turn was to stop that practice is a bit misleading. I live further down Simcoe East and the difference in traffic volume after the signs went up was noticeable (I don't know if the city ever put a strip down to count traffic volumes before or after, so that is just my impression and not empirical fact). IMHO, people were using Simcoe to go from Wellington to James North and generally moving faster than 30km/h. Some of it might have related to trains, but it seemed more steady than that ... perhaps people seeking to avoid lights on Barton or other east-west streets. I really don't know the logic.
