Relieving congestion at terminals.
Serious congestion in Grand Trunk and Canadian Pacific terminals at Toronto and other points, has been obviated by the co-operation of the Canadian Northern Railway in handling over its trunk line between Toronto, Ottawa and Montréal, a large number of cars which the roads were unable to forward, according to figures issued here yesterday.
Up to Feb. 18th a total of 1256 loaded Grand Trunk cars destined for eastern points, had been accepted by the Canadian Northern at Toronto and moved east over its lines. Relief was extended to the C.P.R. to the extent of 360 cars, making a grand total of 1616 cars.
It is officially announced by the Canadian Northern that the road will further co-operate with the other lines to the extent of 90 cars daily from the Grand Trunk at Toronto; and 40 cars each day from the C.P.R. at Sudbury to be handled over the transcontinental line fo the C.N.R. as far as Ottawa.
