Bay of Quinte Ry.—At the recent session of the Dominion Parliament a subsidy of $3,200 a mile was voted towards the construction of an extension from the present terminus at Tweed to Actinolite (Bridgewater), Ont., and to Marmora township, about 20 miles. Tracklaying has been completed on the extension from Tweed to Bannockburn, where a connection has been made with the Central Ontario Ry. The extension starts from a point near the engine shed at Tweed, crosses the C.P.R. track and River st., and parallels that line for some distance, then turning northerly to Actinolite (Bridgewater), then northwesterly to Bannockburn. Temporary wooden bridges have been erected, four of which are to be replaced by steel spans. There will be three stations on the extension, Bridgewater, Queensboro and Allen Settlement. Ballasting is in progress. (Oct., pg. 339.)
