Two railways in a war. Grand Trunk, James Bay.
G.T.R. objects to James Bay.
The Grand Trunk, too, objected to the application of the James Bay Company for permission to cross the northern division of the Grand Trunk near Washago, on the Rama Reserve, and the Government engineer was dispatched north to settle the dispute. The James Bay desired to cross on a level, but Mr. Cowan said that the derailing device necessary at all diamonds would throw their trains if they were derailed to prevent a collision into the river. They wanted the James Bay Company to divert the line to cross on a viaduct. Both alternatives, Mr. Ruel, were impracticable because of excessive expense.
Railways: G.T.Ry., J.B.Ry.
