Grand Trunk Ry. betterments, etc.


Improvements at Beaverton.—Advantage has been taken of the carrying on of construction of the Trent Valley Canal, which enters Lake Simcoe north of Beaverton, Ont., to carry out a number of improvements. The tracks had to be raised in order to be carried over the canal, and in doing this work a number of gradients were reduced and several curves taken out. The heavy grade about a mile east of Lorneville Jct. has been lowered 12 ft., and several feet have been taken off the grade west of Lornesville. Other work in connection with the grade has been done, with a view, it is stated, of doubling the track between Peterboro' and Midland.
