G.T.R. and C.P.R. decided to close some up town ticket offices
It is understood in railway circles that an arrangement has been arrived at between the Grand Trunk and Canadian Pacific railways for the interchange of tickets. By this action on the part of the railways it has become possible for them to do away will all outside ticket agencies, and the consequence is that in towns where such existed they have all been withdrawn. The towns in which the offices will be closed are as follows: Blenheim, Bowansville, Barrie, Clinton, Dresden, Goderich, Hamburg, Listowel, Millbrook, Napanee, Orillia, Paris, Port Perry, Pembroke, Seaforth, Shelbourne, Simcoe, St. Marys, Tilsonburg, Tamworth, Walkerville, Walkerton, Brantford, Fenelon Falls, Lindsay, Norwood, Owen Sound, Plattsfield, Sudbury, Sault Ste. Marie, Smithsville and Tweed. In each of the above town the offices of both railways will be closed.
In the following towns the Canadian Pacific offices only will be closed: Alliston, Aurora, Bracebridge, Brighton, Brussels, Chesely, Chesterville, Collingwood, Durham, Elmira, Enterprise, Exeter, Forest, Georgetown, Hanover, Kincardine, Lucan, Lucknow, Meaford, Moorefield, Paisely, Parry Sound, Strathroy, Sundridge, Tara, Wallaceburg, Wiarton, Berlin and Brampton. A few of the above are already closed and the remainder will be closed at once. By this action, it is understood, the railway companies will save considerable money.
