Railway development.

Projected lines, surveys, construction, betterments, etc.

 .. 

Bay of Quinte Ry.—We were recently advised that nothing had been determined in reference to the proposed extension of the line northwards from Tweed. Work is reported to have commenced on the construction of a line from Deseronto to Napanee, which will give direct connection with the main line north of Napanee and from Napanee to Sydenham. At present the Co., has running powers over the G.T.R. between Deseronto Jct. and Napanee. (Aug., pg. 262.)

 .. 

Galt, Preston and Hespeler St. Ry.—We have been officially advised that it is not the intention of the Co. to do anything in the way of construction on the proposed extension to Puslinch this season. (Aug., pg. 263.)

Grand Valley Ry. Co. (Electric).—Tracklaying was commenced on the line from Brantford to Paris, Ont., at the end of Aug., and was expected to be completed by the end of Sept. For some distance out of Brantford the new line parallels the G.T.R. (Aug., pg. 263.)

 .. 

Huntsville and Lake of Bays Ry.—Some preliminary work was done this season on the portage between Peninsula Lake and Lake of Bays, but no arrangements have yet been made for the construction of the railway, which will be about 1 1/2 miles in length. (Aug., pg. 263.)

 .. 

James Bay Ry.—No construction has been done this season on the projected extension north from Parry Sound, Ont. Survey parties have been in the field the whole summer going over different routes, but nothing has been decided as to the location of the line. The country is a much more difficult one in which to locate a line than was expected. (June, pg. 192.)

 .. 

Kingston and Pembroke Ry.—C. W. Spencer, Vice-President and General Manager, recently said that there was no truth in the report that the car shops are to be removed from Kingston, Ont. He said that new machinery was being added at the shops so that the repairs to the Co.'s engines could be done there. (Feb., pg. 58.)

 .. 

Metropolitan Ry.—Nothing has been decided as to the projected extension of the line to the northern boundary of Newmarket, Ont. (Aug., pg. 269.)

Michigan Central Rd.—A new station, connected with which is a freight shed 70 ft. in length, has been completed at West Lorne, Ont.

The double-tracking of the line between Ridgetown and Bismark, Ont., 18.17 miles, has been completed. The Co. is extending its double track at Hagarsville, Ont., westward, and across the G.T.R. track. (Aug., pg. 265.)

 .. 

The Schomberg and Aurora Ry. (electric), from Bond Lake, on the Metropolitan Ry., to Schomberg, Ont., about 19 miles, has been completed, with the exception of the crossing of the G.T.R. north of King village, and in reference to which legal proceedings have been instituted. The Co. laid down a crossing, but it was removed by the G.T.R., and the S. and A. Ry. Co. is seeking an order to compel the restoration of the track. (Aug., pg. 267.)

 .. 

Whitney to Big Opeongo Lake.—It is reported that this line is completed to within 4 miles of the lake, and is being operated to carry saw-logs to the mills of the St. Anthony Lumber Co., Whitney, Ont. (Aug., pg. 268.)
