Bay of Quinte Ry.—The direct line between Deseronto and Napanee, Ont., about 6 miles, has been completed, but trains are not being operated over it, as connection has not been made with the B. of Q. line at Napanee. To do this the G.T.R. main line will have to be crossed, and no arrangement has been announced in this regard. One proposition is to put in a diamond crossing, similar to that at Trenton, where the Central Ontario Ry. crosses the G.T.R. tracks, and another is to construct a subway under the G.T.R. tracks. It is not at all unlikely that this plan will be followed, as the G.T.R. has recently been considering the raising of its tracks at Napanee station several feet in order to reduce a heavy gradient directly east of the town. Some discussion has recently taken place between engineers representing the Department of Railways, the G.T.R., and the B. of Q. Ry. on the matter, and it will be further discussed at an early date before the Railway Committee of the Privy Council.
The Co. deposited plans of this piece of line with the Ontario Government, but they were found to be irregular in several particulars upon examination at the survey branch of the Crown Lands Department, and after some correspondence they were returned to the Co. for correction, etc. (Jan., pg. 19.)
