Grand Trunk betterments, etc.

The Co. is said to have completed the purchase of a big block of property in the vicinity of Bonaventure station, Montréal, in order to secure better facilities for the handling of freight. One strip of property acquired runs along the line of the railway, & extends west from Mountain st. to Aqueduct st. The other property which has been taken in runs along the south side of Albert st. from Chabolilez square west to Mountain. As soon as the buildings standing on these properties can be demolished the work of erecting the necessary buildings & track laying will be commenced. The acquisition of this property has been made necessary by the large amount of freight now handled at the Bonaventure yards.

It is rumored at Midland, Ont., that the Co. intends erecting large freight sheds there for the handling of package freight.

Surveys have been made for a cut-off line westward from WaterdownWaterdown was later known as Aldershot, Ont., to relieve traffic on the wye, but it is said nothing has yet been decided on in regard to construction.
