G.T.R. betterments, construction, etc.


The G.T.R. is working out plans for the improvement of its lines in the vicinity of Lindsay, Ont., and its facilities for handling traffic in that town. The plans, it is said, show a short line from the main line to the old Midland line, west of the town; a line from Reaboro southerly to the line to Port Hope, to do away with gradients on the existing line; some double tracking; the relaying of the line between Lindsay and Port Hope with 80 lb. rails, and the building of a roundhouse of large capacity in Lindsay. At Port Hope, there will be considerable alterations and additions to the accommodation in the yard, to enable the additional traffic to be handled which will be brought in by the Charlotte-Port Hope steam ferry.
