C.N.R. ready to quit local water contract Dec. 30

The company has created a miniature dam on the little creek north of the station, where engines may stop and refill by means of a suction device operated by steam from the engine of the train. With the larger engines, the company intends to full up at Blackwater to sufficient capacity to run to Toronto Stouffville will only be an emergency one.
