Stratford, Ont., shops.—Plans for extending and modernizing the Stratford locomotive repair shops are under consideration, and it is expected that work will be begun on the new buildings in the spring. The plans were prepared under the direction of Master Mechanic Pattern, who recently inspected a number of shops in the U.S. The recent press reports referring to the concentration in Stratford shops of the whole of the repair work of the line, and the consequent erection of large additions to the shops, are said to be somewhat premature, as nothing has been definitely decided on.
