London Division.—A press report states that about $425,000 has been appropriated for betterments on the London Division to be done during this year. The work is reported to include the relaying of 85 miles of track between Paris and London, Ont., with 100 lb. steel rails; the 85 lb. rails at present in use to be relaid on other lines, the building of stations at Clandeboye, and Hawtrey, on the Port Dover branch, and the remodelling of stations. The question of the signal system to be adopted between London and Paris has not yet been announced, but the report states that an electric block system is favored.

The company is, according to a press report, prepared to go ahead with laying out of a reclamation yard at London, Ont., details of which were given in Canadian Railway and Marine World for Dec., 1919. The question of closing Wilson Ave., in connection with the carrying out the work is before the London City Council.
