Victoria, December 1st, 1916.
Hon. John Oliver,
Minister of Railways, Victoria, B.C.
Sib,—I have the honour to submit a report covering a period from 1911 to December 31st,
1916, dealing with the activities of the Department of Railways since its establishment under
the provisions of chapter 45, as passed by the Legislature of British Columbia in 1911, and with
the construction and operation of railways coming under its jurisdiction as laid down in section 3
thereof.
In addition to railways proper, the Department has charge of other works, such as the
improvements of the Songhees railway terminals, Victoria, and the combined railway and
highway bridge over the Fraser River at New Westminster, with its railway and highway
approaches and connections.
The staff of the Department consisted at its inception in 1911 of the Chief Engineer of
Railways and one stenographer. Since then, the work having increased, the staff now comprises
the following: Chief Engineer, Assistant Engineer, Engineer in Charge of the Songhees
Terminals, Inspector of Rolling Stock and Equipment, clerk, and stenographer.
From 1911 up to the end of 1916 letters inward number 7,204 and those outward 7,948.
The Minister's certificates issued in accordance with the provisions of the Act number 39S,
and refer to all such matters connected with railways as provided for therein.    A list of these
certificates will be found in Appendix A attached hereto.
Preliminary plans to the number of twenty-five, showing general locations of proposed
railways, where required by the Act, were submitted under the terms of section 16 thereof
and received the Minister's certificate and approval.
Under the provisions of section 17 of the Act, location plans, profiles, and books of reference
to the number of 137 were submitted and received the Minister's sanction.
All drawing of standard structures, as required by the provisions of the Act, were placed
before the Minister after examination and received his approval.    (See Appendix B.)
Accidents which have happened on railways under the jurisdiction of this Department
reported as required by the Act are stated in Appendix C attached.
The Minister approved by his certificates, confirmed by Orders in Council, the Rules and
Regulations governing the operation of the following railways:—
British Columbia Electric Railway.
Canadian Northern Pacific Railway.
Pacific Great Eastern Railway.
Wellington Colliery Railway.
Comox Logging Railway.
And has also approved by certificates, confirmed by Orders in Council, the following Rules
and Regulations issued by the Department:—
Regulations re Railway Safety Appliances.
Rules re Inspection of Safety Appliances.
Rules, Regulations, and Instructions relating to Equipment and Operation of Railways.
Rules prescribing Equipment and Appliances for Operation of Electric Railways.
Uniform Rules governing the Determination of Visual Acuity, Colour, etc.

The Inspector of Rolling Stock and Equipment makes periodical inspections of locomotives,
passenger-coaches, baggage-cars, and box, flat, and coal cars, engine-houses, shops, etc., paying
particular attention to the air-brake equipment and safety appliances, at the same time satisfying
himself that all the rules and regulations of the Department are strictly carried out.
The railway companies, in accordance with the requirements of the Rules, Regulations, and
Instructions relating to the Equipment and Operation of Railways, send to the Department
returns of the examination of train crews, etc., monthly returns of locomotive inspections on D 6 Department of Railways. 1917
the prescribed forms, an annual report of tests, and a locomotive specification card, all of which
are placed on file in the Department for future reference.

(Chapters 3 and 4, 1910;   Chapter 32, 1912;   Chapters 57 and 58, 1913;   and Chapter 61, 1914.)
The surveys for the location of the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway commenced on May
lst, 1909.    The construction of the main line commenced on July 10th, 1910.
The system of the company in British Columbia, when all work provided for is completed,
will comprise the following:— D 8
Department op Railways.
1917
498.6 miles from Westminster Bridge to Tellowhead Pass, completed.
100 „ Victoria towards Barclay Sound, subgrade completed, no track laid.
11 ,, Westminster Bridge to Vancouver, not yet built, but for the present
running rights over the Great Northern Railway between these two
points have been obtained.
15 „ Westminster Bridge to Steveston, incomplete.
15.2 ,, junction near Victoria to Patricia Bay, completed.
150 ,, Barclay. Sound North,  an extension  of the Victoria-Barclay  Sound
Line, about 45.5 miles of which have been graded to Alberni Canal.
145 ,, Kamloops to Vernon, Lumby, and Kelowna, no construction-work as
yet, only right-of-way and terminal properties purchased.
Terminals, as provided for in chapter 59, 1913, at Port Mann, New Westminster, Vancouver.
Victoria, Steveston, and Patricia Bay, are in course of development, with the exception of those
at New Westminster and Steveston.
The main line of the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway enters the Province of British
Columbia through the Rocky Mountains at Tellowhead Pass, and, paralleling the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway on the south side thereof, follows the Fraser River for a distance of about
forty-two miles; thence turning south passes over Albreda Summit to the North Thompson
River, which it follows to Kamloops, crossing this river four times. From Kamloops, paralleling
the Canadian Pacific Railway, generally on the opposite side of the river, it continues down the
Thompson River, crossing it seven times, and the Fraser River, crossing it at two points, to
New Westminster Bridge; thence passing over it proceeds to Vancouver over the line of the
Great Northern Railway.
The location has been selected with judgment and skill for the greater part through a rough
and difficult country, and the line now presents at its completion and in operation a single-track
railway of the first class, of the most substantial and solid character, unequalled On the continent.
The work of construction has been ably carried out, and while nothing has been slighted, there
has been due regard paid to economy. In fact, it is doubtful if any other transcontinental road
has been built with such care and less waste.
The track is laid with 80-lb. steel rails, 3,000 ties to the mile, and with tie-plates on all
curves. The maximum curve is 8 degrees, of which there are 136. All curves have easements or
spirals at both ends. The total angles of curvature are to the right 16,440 degrees, to the left
16,376 degrees. The maximum and approximate grades over the sections between New Westminster Bridge and Y'ellowhead Pass are as given in the following table:—

In this table a number of small ups and downs in grade have not been taken into account.
It is also pointed out that in the forty-eight miles from Asheroft to Kamloops Junction the
maximum grade is given at 0.40 per cent., whereas there is for a short distance a 0.50-per-cent.
grade, but as this is not a ruling grade it is not taken into account. Also in the thirty-one
miles, Chu Chua to Birch Island, there is about 2,000 of 1-per-cent. grade, but as this will
eventually be reduced it is not included in the table, as it is not considered a ruling grade.
Between Birch Island and Blue River there are two short pieces of 0.60 grade. Near Cranberry
Lake there is a piece of 1-per-cent. adverse temporary grade; this, however, will not affect
east-bound traffic, and will eventually be reduced. All grades have been compensated for
curvature.
The general manager of the Western lines of this railway has furnished the following
information concerning the relation of grades to the efficiency of locomotives:—
" In the C.N.R. classification of engines 1 per cent, means 1,000 lb. of tractive effort (or
pull). The engine hauling the Transcontinental Special is 35-per cent. It is, accordingly,
capable of a " pull " of 35,000 lb. The train itself of fifteen cars is 1,235 feet in length and
weighs 1,200 tons, inclusive of the engine, which weighs 165 tons loaded. From Edmonton
west-bound a 35-per-cent. engine would haul thirty-two loaded freight-cars, of an average weight,
cars and contents, of 50 tons each, over the B/M of 1 per cent, maximum grade between Edmonton
and Albreda Summit, the train running towards the Coast. The same engine would be able to
pick up thirty-three other loaded cars of similar weight at Albreda Summit and carry the total
load of sixty-five cars to the Coast (426 miles). A 50-per-cent. engine of the C.N.R. classification
would haul forty-eight loaded cars to the Albreda Summit and ninety to the Coast,
" A 35-per-cent. engine starting out from the Pacific Coast towards Edmonton will handle
thirty-five loaded cars, or a total of 1,750 tons, as far as Blue River (383.3 miles from New
Westminster Bridge). Between Blue River and Lucerne, a distance of 110 miles, the maximum
gradient of the C.N.R. in the Rocky Mountains—T/M of 1 per cent.—occurs. In that division
a 35-per-cent. locomotive will handle twenty-four loaded cars, or 1,200 tons. From Lucerne to
Edmonton the same locomotive Will pull thirty-six loaded cars, or 1,800 tons. The hauling
capacity of a 50-per-cent. engine would, of course, be proportionately greater.
" Now as to passenger traffic. Taking as a basis a transcontinental train of eight passenger-
cars, a 35-per-cent. C.N.R. engine may run through to the Coast, west-bound, between Edmonton
and Vancouver, at a minimum speed of forty miles an hour; and the speed would drop to that
rate only on that section of line affected by the %„ of 1 per cent., or the maximum grade. East-
bound, on the division where the 7/M of 1 per cent, maximum gradient occurs or on twenty-eight
miles of the 110 miles between Blue River and Lucerne, a 35-per-cent. locomotive will be able
to haul the eight-ear train at a speed of thirty miles an hour. Apart from that section of that
division, a speed may be obtained as great as desired up to fifty miles an hour between Vancouver
and Edmonton.
" Broadly speaking, the addition of each y10 of 1 per cent, in the grade of a railway means
that the efficiency of the locomotive is reduced 2 lb. for each gross ton of its load. The frictional
resistance of equipment moving over a level track is approximately 5 lb. per gross ton. As the
line rises 2 lb. for each y10 of 1 per cent, of grade for each ton of load are added to the 5 lb.
To interpret: A grade of 4/10 of 1 per cent, would mean a total resistance of 13 lb. for each
gross ton of the load, made up by the 5 lb. counter-frictional resistance and the 8 lb. for the */10
of 1 per cent, grade. The total for a B/I0 of 1 per cent, grade would be 15 lb.; that for a */„ grade
17 lb.; that for a 7/10 grade would be 19 lb.; and for a 1-per-cent. grade 25 lb. To ascertain
the tonnage possible for a locomotive to handle on any grade, the calculator would be quite
within the bounds of reason to subtract 10 per cent, from the total capacity of the engine, and
to divide the remainder 'by the frictional resistance as given above. Curvature also adds to the
resistance, but on this line that is compensated for by the reduction grades at curves. To give
an example of a 35-per-cent. engine:—
Total tractive effort     35,000
Internal friction for loss of steam-pressure, etc., less 10 per cent     3,500
Balance available for haulage purposes   31,500
" Divide this by 13, the frictional resistance on a V,0-per-cent. grade per gross ton, and the
result will be 2,423 gross tons as the total possible gross load for that locomotive.    Subtract the D 10
Department of Railways.
1917
weight of the engine and tender from the load and the load will be 2,25S tons, which at 50 tons
each for a freight-car and contents give forty-five cars."
The running-time between Vancouver and Lucerne, a divisional point five miles west of
Yellowhead Pass, is twenty-three hours, including stops.
The total expenditure to completion of the railway between the points under reference,
498.96 miles, is $34,437,454.82. Average cost, $69,018.05 per mile. To this total should be added
the sum of $256,500, the purchase price paid for a portion, nine miles, of the New Westminster
Southern Railway between Port Kells and Westminster Bridge.
By divisions the cost per mile is as follows:—

The superstructure of all bridges over the Fraser, Thompson, and North Thompson Rivers
are steel resting on concrete substructures. The number of these with the number and length
of spans are given in detail in the statement attached (see Appendix E). Timber trestles
included.
There are also several steel trestles and girder spans resting on concrete substructures
crossing over important ravines and streams between Hope and Lytton, the details of which
are given in the statement above referred to.
Concrete arch culverts have been built to carry creeks under high embankments at the

Between Hope and Kamloops, Mileage 91 and 25S from Vancouver, there are thirty-three
tunnels in rock of a total length of 18,991 lineal feet; the shortest is 129 feet, and the longest,
through Battle Bluff on Kamloops Lake, 2,837 feet. North of Kamloops to Tellowhead Pass
there are five tunnels, two in earth and three in rock, with a total length of 2,176 feet; the
shortest of these is 135 feet, while the longest is 1,216 feet, opposite Mounts Robson and
Resplendent.
The tunnels at Mileage 423.3 and 425 from Vancouver, through fine mica sand, though
timbered throughout, have had to be abandoned for the present owing to the impossibility of
preventing the fine material sifting through. A line around the outside was substituted therefor,
but they may be in the future lined with concrete. Tunnels 41 and 42, through wet clay,
collapsed and a through cut has been substituted.
All the tunnel portals have been protected and the interiors lined with timber wherever
considered necessary for safety. ill

The equipment, including rolling-stock of the line, is of the most modern design, and is
such as may be demanded and expected of a railway of this class, in operation. All the
locomotives are coal-'burning.
The divisional points are at Port Mann (114.9 M.), Boston Bar (125.7 M.), Kamloops
(139.8 M.), Blue River, and Lucerne (110.7.), five miles west of the summit at the Provincial
Boundary; and are fully provided with suitable passenger-stations, freight-sheds, water-tanks,
water service, oil-tanks, ice-houses, engine-houses, blacksmith-shops, repair-shops; in fact, everything required to equip a divisional-point and operate it efficiently. The yards have necessary
sidings and loading and unloading tracks. (<See Appendix F with reference to buildings erected,
Port Mann-Tellowhead Pass.)
A statement of the stations and sidings, giving names and mileage ffom New Westminster

In accordance with the terms of the agreement contained in chapter 3, 1910, a spur, about
three miles in length, might have been constructed from Kamloops Junction to a point on the
South Thompson River opposite the City of Kamloops for the accommodation of passengers and
freight, but the company preferred to charge the cost of this against the proceeds of the bonds
guaranteed under the provisions of chapter 57, 1913.
The Canadian Northern Pacific Railway Company has entered into an agreement with the
Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern Railway and Navigation Company for running rights over the
latter's  tracks  between Westminster Bridge and Vancouver,  with the privilege  of using its
railway-station at the latter point until the new stations, side by side, of the two companies
are constructed on the False Creek Flats east of Main Street, Vancouver.    To be ratified by
Dominion Act.
The Canadian Northern Pacific Railway Company has purchased the line of the Westminster
Southern Railway between Port Kells and the end of the approach to the Bridge at New Westminster, a length of nine miles, for the sum of about $256,500.    This was paid in Toronto, and
is therefore not included in the statement of cost hereinbefore given. sj*   ~ 1?

The company has come to an arrangement with the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern Railway
and Navigation Company whereby the latter company is given running rights over its line
between Sumas Junction and the Town of Hope.    To be ratified by Dominion Act.
The first through train inaugurating the transcontinental service of this railway between
Vancouver and Toronto passed over the line in November, 1915. A regular passenger service of
the first elass was inaugurated a few weeks later, with three passenger-trains weekly in both
directions.
The amount of freight transported is said to be satisfactory, and, in fact, both passenger
and freight traffic may be considered as very encouraging.
The extremely favourable uniform grades and alignments through the mountains enjoyed
by this railway presents an advantage in cost of maintenance and operation which no other
continental line can equal.
The passenger and freight traffic between Vancouver and Hope carried by accommodation
train has quite come up to, if not exceeded, expectations.
Since the advent of this railway the agricultural development of the North Thompson country
has shown marked progress.
During last winter, from January 21st to February 29th, the line of the railway through
British Columbia was closed on account of an unusual fall of snow. Other railways in the
Province suffered, but not to the same extent as this road did.
Victohia-Barclay Sound Railway. ,
From the proposed terminus on the Songhees Reserve the Victoria-Barclay Sound Line
crosses Selkirk Water above Point Ellice Bridge, Victoria Harbour, on a long wooden trestle with
two steel bascule spans, and passes under a concrete bridge carrying the Gorge Road over a
ravine, proceeding in a north-westerly direction to a junction with the Patricia Bay Branch of
the railway at Regina Avenue; thence taking a south-westerly direction to the head of Pedder
Bay, and by way of Matheson Lake touches Sooke Basin, running along the north shore thereof
to the Sooke River, which it follows up to the lake of the same name, keeping along the east
shore thereof to its upper end; thence crossing over the divide between Sooke and Shawnigan
Lakes the line follows the west side of the latter, some little distance back therefrom, to the
head of its north-west arm. From this point the line runs in a north-westerly direction to
Cowichan River, crossing it at Skutz Falls, recrossing again to the south bank of the river it
turns to the north a little -below the outlet of Cowichan Lake, and follows along the north side
of the lake to its head, where the 100 miles provided for in the agreement terminate.
An economical location was difficult to obtain, but finally the one chosen shows care and
judgment, and meets the conditions satisfactorily.
Owing to the peculiar physical characteristics of the country, it was necessary to adopt,
for economical reasons, 12 degrees as a maximum curve, but in every instance both ends of all
curves will be eased toy spirals. The total length of maximum curves is 3.80 miles, as follows:
Division A, 3.04 miles;  Division C, 0.76 mile.
The maximum gradient is 1.5 per cent., with a total length of 8.83 miles, distributed as
follows :    Division A, 2.66 miles ;  Division B, 2.27 miles ;  Division C, 3.90 miles.
The subgrade has been constructed in a substantial and thorough manner, both embankments
and cuts being of standard width. The long delay in completion will result in many slides in
both banks and cuts and in a very heavy growth of brush, which to make good and cut down
respectively will entail a rather heavy expenditure when work is resumed.
No track is laid, but the intention is to use a 70-lb. rail. A list of the wooden trestles erected,
the total length of which is 10,811.5 feet, is to be found in Appendix G.
The limit of safety of a wooden structure is about ten years; therefore it is evident that,
even if the road is immediately completed,' it will not be many years before several of the
trestles will have to be renewed.
Certain steel structures which it is proposed to erect are set forth, with particulars, in the
following statement; these, however, include one that has been already built to carry the
Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway's track over this line. D 14

Figuring as closely as possible, about 75 per cent, of the estimated cost of the work required
to complete this 100 miles has been expended—namely, $2,634,906.S4; dividing this sum by the
mileage, 100, the quotient is $26,349.06, the average cost per mile.
This section has been divided into three divisions lettered (A), (B), and (C). The cost
to date per mile of each division is given below:—
Division (A),    40 miles, expenditure to date   $1,495,874.12 = $37,146.85,
cost per mile.
Division (B),   20 miles, expenditure to date       360,862.13 = $18,043.16,
cost per mile.
Division  (C),    40 miles, expenditure to date         778,170.59 = $19,454.26,
cost per mile.
100 miles, expenditure to date   $2,634,908.84 = $20,349.06,
cost per mile.
The estimated cost to complete this 100 miles, including track, is $1,066,176.16.
Of the proceeds of the guaranteed bonds, $26,000,000, sold covering 600 miles on Mainland
and Island, the sum of $23,511,537.40 has been released according to the Department of Finance.
Okanagan Branches.
(Subsection (b). Section 3, Chapter 32, 1912.)
The branch from Kamloops to Vernon and Kelowna, situated in the Okanagan country,
commences at Kamloops Junction, about three miles up the North Thompson River from the
City of Kamloops; it runs thence down to a point opposite the city on the north side of the
South Thompson River;   from the latter point the line is at present located eastward up the 7 Geo. 5 British Columbia. D 15
South Thompson River, on the north side thereof, for a distance of fifteen miles, where it crosses
to the south side. It is said, however, to be the intention of the company to abandon this
location and, instead, cross the South Thompson in the vicinity of Third Street in the city to
the south side, locating the line into and through Kamloops to connect with the located line
fifteen miles up-stream, referred to above.
From this point the location gradually climbs the foot-hills and ascends Monte Creek to
Grande Prairie, through which it proceeds to and down the valley of Salmon River and over to
Otter Lake, turning north to the City of Armstrong. At Armstrong the line doubles back,
forming a loop; thence passing Otter Lake on the right and Swan Lake on the left, through
the City of Vernon, up Long Lake Creek to Long Lake, which it follows on the west shore,
passing Woods Lake on the right, and so on to the City of Kelowna on Okanagan Lake.
At Vernon a branch line will be built eastward up Coldstream to Lumby, about eighteen
miles in length. It is also provided for the company to build a short line from the City of
Vernon to a point on the East Arm of Okanagan Lake opposite Okanagan Landing. This will
probably be about five miles in length.
No construction has taken place between Kamloops and any of the points in the Okanagan
Valley, the only expenditure being payment of the cost of location engineering and the purchase
of right-of-way and station and terminal facilities.
The early construction and operation of these branches will afford another outlet for the
products of the Okanagan Valley, 'bringing the fruit-growers and shippers into closer touch with
the best markets lying to the east of the mountains. It will, without doubt, most materially
improve and encourage the development of this section.
The total expenditure on these branches is $845,972.67, of which $707,075.39 have been
expended in the purchase of property for railway purposes, the remainder being for expenses
of location and for the construction of the three miles south from Kamloops Junction to the
city.    The estimated final cost of the completion of these branches is $4,90S,251.91.
The most difficult and costly piece of location and construction work is that which lies
between Kamloops and Grande Prairie.
Lulu Island Branch, Steveston Extension.
(Subsection (6), Section 2, Chapter 57, 1913.)
The construction of the Steveston Extension, or Lulu Island Branch, starts at the north end
of the New Westminster Bridge, passes through the City of New Westminster, crossing the North
Arm of the Fraser River outside the limits, and so on down the north bank of the Fraser River
to Steveston, a distance of about fifteen miles, more or less.
No construction has taken place yet within the limits of the City of New Westminster owing
to the delay of bringing the negotiations with the city, regarding occupation of the streets, to a
satisfactory conclusion. The line is constructed and track laid from a junction with British
Columbia Electric Railway line at Queensboro to a connection with the " T" of the same
company at Steveston, a distance of 12.02 miles.
It is assumed that it was originally the intention to build ferry-slips at Steveston for the
purpose of transferring passenger and freight cars to a steam-ferry and car-barges for transportation to Patricia Bay, Vancouver Island, and by rail from that place to Victoria. The ferry
is one of the conditions contained in section 6 of the Schedule to chapter 3, 1910. Steveston as
a point for this transfer seems to have been abandoned, at least for the present, as a ferry-slip
has been built at Port Mann for such purposes.
The estimated final cost of the extension to Steveston is $520,090. This sum does not include
the cost of the terminal lines through New Westminster.
150 Miles Extension of Victoria-Barclay Sound Line.
(Subsection (a), Section 3, Chapter 32, 1912.)
About 36.5 miles of this extension have been constructed commencing from the end of the
100 miles from Victoria provided for in the original agreement. It now touches the shores of
Alberni Canal, some four miles below the City of Alberni.
The location, through a difficult and rough country, is the result of much care and good
judgment. D 16 Department of Railways. 1017
The maximum curve is 12 degrees, the total length of which is 5.7 miles. The maximum
grade is 1.5, of a total length of 9.43 miles.
The line is completed to subgrade in a substantial and workmanlike manner. The embankments and rock-cuts of standard dimensions; the permanent wooden trestle bridges are of
standard design similar to those constructed elsewhere on the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway
system.
The expenditure on this extension up to date is $1,632,954, or at the average rate of $35,834
per mile.
The total estimated cost, including track, of completing the forty miles to Port Alberni is
$1,073,378.75.
To be of any practical value the Victoria-Barclay Sound Line should be continued to the
City of Alberni, at the head of the Alberni Canal.
Patricia Bay Branch.
(Subsection (c), Section 2, Chapter 57, 1912.)
The Patricia Bay Branch turns out from the main line at Regina Avenue, about two miles
from the terminus on the Songhees Reserve; from thence turning to the eastward it passes
under the Victoria & Sidney Railway, skirting Swan Lake to the left, and leaving Mount Douglas
on the right, it runs along the shore of Cordova Bay sometimes close to and again a mile or
so distant therefrom until Saanichton is reached; then passing close along the shore again at
Bazan Bay, where the line inclines to the left, crossing the Victoria & Sidney and the British
Columbia Electric Railways, to the west side of the Saanich Peninsula, where navigable water
is reached at Patricia Bay (formerly called Union Bay), a distance of 13.5 miles from the
junction.
At Patricia Bay, about fifty-nine miles from the Port Mann Wharf, a ferry-slip is iu course
of construction to accommodate the steam-ferry and transfer barges, connecting the main line
traffic with Vancouver Island, referred to in the original agreement.
The line is well located, passing through the best parts of the Saanich Peninsula. The work
is very light except in the vicinity of Swan Lake—namely, the rock-cut under the Victoria &
Sidney Railway—and the approaches nearing Selkirk Water.
The maximum grade is 1.1 per cent., which ascends north from the Victoria & Sidney Railway
crossing for about 2,000 feet. At about Mile 7 there is a 1 per cent, descending grade north
for 500 feet.    At Mile 3 there is a descending grade of 1 per cent, for 2,200 feet.
The level crossings over the Victoria & Sidney Railway and the British Columbia Electric
Railway will be protected by interlocking devices.
The work is completed and the line is ready to be opened to traffic as soon as the operating
department of the company takes the necessary steps.
The total expenditure on this branch is $1,179,510.94. This sum divided by the mileage,
15.22, gives an average cost per mile of $77,497. It is noted that the cost of the right-of-way
is $843,035.94, representing 71 per cent, of the total cost.
New Westminster Bridge to Vancouver.
(Subsection (c), Section 2, Chapter 57, 1913.)
The length of the line between Westminster Bridge and Vancouver is estimated at about
eleven miles.
The company has not yet given publicity as to its intention with respect to the construction
of this extension. It is possible that work will be delayed just so long as the agreement for
running rights over the Great Northern Railway to Vancouver is satisfactory to both parties.
Total Expenditure, Branches.
The sum of $2,978,455.30 of the proceeds of the bonds guaranteed under chapter 57 has been
released in connection with the Branches, according to the statement of the Department of
Finance. Geo. 5 British Columbia. D 17
Terminals.
Port Mann.—This terminal point is situated about two miles above New Westminster Bridge
on the south bank of the Fraser River. The yard will be about three miles long between the
limits.    The water-front is 10,155 lineal feet.
The yard comprises 6S.66 acres. There are numerous spurs and through sidings as well as
loading and unloading tracks.    These will be added to as the traffic demands.
The wharf is 102 x 1,000 feet; it is built entirely of timber. About 2,100 feet below the
lower end of the wharf there is a ferry-slip or dock, completed and in service, from which car-
barges are towed to and fro between Vancouver and Port Mann, and in the future between
Port Mann and Patricia Bay. Eventually the passenger steam-ferry provided for in section 6
of the schedule to chapter 3, 1910, will leave on regular trips from this slip for Patricia Bay.
There are three car-barges, two of 7-car and one of 11-car capacity, which will be towed to
and from Vancouver and Patricia Bay by tug-boats.
Buildings erected at this terminal are passenger station—first class—and platform, scales
in house, ice-house, water-tank, water service, storehouse, 15-stall engine-house, coal-bunkers,
blacksmith-shop, boiler-house, machine-shops, repair-shop, car-shops, boarding-house, bunk-house,
and other buildings which are of more or less importance.
The yard is being rapidly filled in by train and dredge, and will be raised above danger of
overflow at summer high -water. It is evidently the intention to make this place a permanent
yard.
The estimated expenditure at this time considered necessary to develop this terminal is
$1,237,540.
Neio Westminster.—Beyond purchasing property for railway purposes nothing has been done.
The total cost estimated as required to complete this terminal is $2,017,575.
Steveston.—No development of this proposed terminal has taken place. The estimated total
expenditure to carry out the contemplated works is $472,500.
Vancouver.—The company acquired a certain portion of the False Creek Flats, east of
Main Street, Vancouver, for railway purposes from the City of Vancouver, with the conditions
as set forth in an agreement dated February Sth, 1913, entered into between the City of
Vancouver and the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway Company and the Canadian Northern
Railway Company, wherein, for the area of land to be conveyed, the company agreed to erect
thereon a commodious railway-station, construct a sewer to drain the surrounding property,
and a sea-wall, or quay, on the outside of Main Street, in False Creek.
There are also other particulars attached to this agreement, such as a hotel to be built in
the city, and the city was to expropriate, and the company to pay for, certain lots north and
south on the east side of the present Main Street Bridge and fronting on that street. There
are other conditions which it is not necessary to mention here.
The property situated on the flat acquired by the company from the city is flanked on the
north, south, and east sides by the property and tracks of the Great Northern Railway Company.
The station of the latter company is also on the flat close to the north boundary of the property
of the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway Company.
The proposed total expenditure in the development of this terminal is $4,544,400.
Victoria.—Nothing has yet been done towards the development of the portion of the
Songhees Reserve proposed to be allotted to the Canadian Northern Pacific Railway Company,
41% acres, which includes land above as well as below high water, but, as the Government has
leased for a term of two years or so, for ship-building purposes, a portion of this allotment, it
is assumed that the railway company, as soon as the bridge over Selkirk Water is completed,
will probably locate their station on the reserve north of Point Ellice Bridge. This would meet
the requirements for some little time to come.
The expenditure estimated that is necessary to develop this terminal is $853,125.
Patricia Bay.—The terminal works at Patricia Bay are not very extensive, consisting only
of the Gulf ferry-slip, or dock, and track for switching facilities. The total cost estimated to
complete this terminal is $S3,685.
The estimated final cost of the development of these six terminals, $9,208,885, must be
treated entirely in a tentative sense.    It is impossible at this early date to more than very D 18 Department of Railways. 1917
approximately approach the cost.    As time passes the requirements may vary, and the prices
of work may range higher or lower than that obtaining at the present time.
The total amount released on account of terminals is $3,614,977.31.
Pacific Great Eastern Railway.
(Chapter 34, 1912, ratifying agreement;   Chapter 36, 1912, incorporating Pacific Great Eastern
Railway;   Chapter 61, 1913, Amendment to Chapter 34, 1912;   Chapter 62, 1913, Amendment
to Chapter 36, 1912;   Chapter 65, 1914, Further Aid.)
The surveys in connection with the location of this railway were commenced on May 1st,
1912. Construction was started on October 27th, 1912, and only ceased when the money available
for carrying on the work was exhausted.
The line commences on the north shore of Burrard Inlet at the Second Narrows, although
section 4 of the schedule to chapter 34, 1912, stipulates that the company shall build a line of
railway from the City of Vancouver to the City of North Vancouver. This would require a
bridge over the Second Narrows costing over $1,000,000, a fact which was evidently lost sight
of at the time, as no reference is made in the agreement for a bridge of this description to be
built by the Pacific Great Eastern Railway Company or by any one else. There has been a
great deal of discussion with regard to a bridge at this point to be built by a bridge company
assisted by contributions from municipalities and the Provincial and Dominion Governments,
but beyond preparing designs and calling for tenders nothing has been done. It is not likely
the expenditure that such a great work entails will be undertaken for many years.
Leaving the Second Narrows, the located line skirts the north shore of Burrard Inlet, past
the end of Lonsdale Avenue, in the City of North Vancouver, to the limits thereof; thence
entering the Municipality of West Vancouver it follows generally the contour of the coast-line
of English Bay to Whytecliff, on the east coast of Howe Sound. From this point north the
line follows closely the shore of Howe Sound to Squamish; leaving Squamish, it continues
north up the Squamish and Cheakamus Rivers to the Summit Lakes; descending from Green
Lake at the summit, the line passes across Pemberton Meadows, over the Lillooet River, and
rises again to Birkenhead Summit; falling from Birkenhead Summit to Anderson Lake, the
railway follows along the margin thereof on the north side, across the portage to Seton Lake,
then close along its shore to the outlet, and down Seton Lake Creek, crossing Cayuse Creek, to
Lillooet; leaving the latter point, the Fraser River is crossed to East Lillooet by a timber-truss
bridge, deck spans. From East Lillooet the-railway follows up the Eraser River, on the east
side thereof, at a very considerable elevation above it, to Kelly Lake Creek, up which it turns,
passing Kelly Lake to the left, and so on to Clinton; proceeding thence, the line ascends to Horse
Lake Summit over an elevated plateau 3,000 to 4,000 feet above sea-level, swings round to the
south and west of Bridge Creek House, and thence to the south side of Lac la Hache, down the
San Jose Valley to a divisional point at Williams Lake; from there the line crosses to the east
or left 'bank of the Fraser River, up which it follows the arable benches at an elevation of 300
to 400 feet above the river, passing en route Soda Creek and Quesnel to a connection with the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway at Fort George at the east end of that company's bridge over the
Fraser River. The distance from the Second Narrows, North Vancouver, to the junction with
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway at Fort George is in round numbers 476 miles.
The line has been carefully, and with great judgment and skill, located with a proper regard
to economy and efficiency of this class of road. Of necessity it passes over mountain ranges
which bar its course to the Fraser River. As may be imagined, the country is very rugged and
difficult, necessitating heavy work, heavy gradients, and sharp curves.
The maximum grades vary from 2 to 2.2 per cent., compensated for curvature; these heavy
grades occur only between Cheakamus and Kelly Lake Summit; in all, for about sixty miles
going north from the former place, and for 1S.5 miles going south from the latter point. Between
the latter and Fort George there is no heavier grade than 1 per cent. The ruling grade from
Squamish to Williams Lake is 1 per cent.; that from Fort George South 0.75 per cent. Where
the maxima occur they will be pusher grades.
The maximum curvature is one 14-degree between Retaskit and Lillooet. one 13-degree
between West Vancouver and Whytecliff, and 367 12-degree curves distributed as follows:—  Cheakamus Canyon. B0McMmW^)M?

121 between Lillooet and Clinton.
2 between Clinton and Fort George.
The total curvature is:    Right, 28,414 degrees;   left, 27.814 degrees.
The road up to subgrade is built in a solid and substantial manner. Due regard has been
paid to economical construction without skimping the work.
The general width of earth cuttings is 20 feet, of embankments 15 feet, and of rock-cuttings
16 feet.
The subgrade is practically completed to Fort George, with the exception of about twenty-
seven miles between Whytecliff aud Squamish and a gap of about eighteen miles between Mile
250 and Mile 278 from Squamish.
Sixty-pound rails are used, except on maximum grades, where a 70-lb. rail is laid. There
are tie-plates on curves and 3,000 ties to the mile.
There are ten tunnels, all in rock, between Squamish and Fort George of a total length of
2,727 lineal feet, the longest of which is 665 feet, while the shortest is 123 feet.
All trestle bridges and truss spans up to this date have' been constructed of timber, but there
are trestles north of Williams Lake which, because of their great height—namely, Deep (Creek
below Soda Creek, and Cottonwood River—will be steel; steel truss and girder spans will be
erected over the Quesnel River, and probably two or three steel truss or girder centre spans
will be placed in the Cottonwood Creek Bridge.
The divisional points are Squamish ;   120 miles;   Lillooet;   156 miles ;   Williams Lake ;   156'
miles;   Fort George.
Under the provisions of subsection (7), section 178, of chapter 194, R.S.B.C. 1911, authority
was given on the certificate of the Minister to carry traffic as follows:—
(1.)  On August 17th, "1914, between Lonsdale Avenue and Whytecliff.
(2.)  On May 28th, 1915, between Squamish Dock and Lillooet.
(3.)  On June 18th, 1916, between Lillooet and Clinton.
These portions of the line are operated by the contractor.
Between Lonsdale Avenue and Whytecliff the opening of the road was due to an agreement
between the company and the municipalities. The service between Squamish and Lillooet, and
then on to Clinton, was authorized for the convenience and accommodation of the public.
The Lonsdale Avenue and the Whytecliff section has been interrupted on several occasions
by the washing-away of the Capilano River Bridge, the washing-away of crib supporting the
track along the shore of English Bay, and the breaking-down of the motive power. This motive-
power consisted at first of three gasolene-motor coaches which were afterwards supplemented
by steam-power.
The line above Squamish was blocked by snow on January 21st, 1916, and was not opened
again for traffic until April 22nd following.
At Squamish there is a dock extending out for at least 2,600 feet from the shore to navigable
water, where a transfer of both passenger and freight is made with steamships and car-barges.
At the head of the approach to the dock is a large oil-tank, capacity 40,000 barrels, from which
the locomotives, all oil-burning, are supplied.
The whole of the rolling-stock, locomotives, passenger-coaches, box and flat cars are owned
by the contractor.
About two miles from the dock are situated the yards of the company on which are erected
a 6-stall engine-house, a turntable, and repair and blacksmith shops. This yard is extensive
and will in time be developed and made capable of accommodating all future traffic.
Under the provisions of section 7. chapter 38, 1916, the Government is empowered to advance
to this company $6,000,000 for the purpose of completing the line to Fort George under certain
conditions set forth therein.
There can be no doubt but that this railway is a necessity for the proper development of the
Districts of Lillooet and Cariboo as far north as Fort George. These districts have long suffered
for the want of transportation facilities, as it possesses great possibilities in agriculture, cattle-
raising, and mining. D 20 Department of Railways. 1917
The final estimated total cost is placed at $27,556,250.21, of which about $1S,779,5S6.33 has
been released by the Government, and of this $749,689.33 has been paid since April 1st last.
It will be desirable in the near future to build subsidiary lines to the Pacific Great Eastern
Railway: First, one on the right or west bank of the Fraser River, crossing it above Churn
Creek, passing through the lands lying in the Chilcotin and Blackwater countries, which have
great possibilities, and so on north to a connection with the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway at
Prince George; and, secondly, a branch line eastwards, turning off somewhere between 108-Mile
House on the old Cariboo Wagon-road and Lac la Hache, which will open up the large expanse
of country lying in the vicinity of the Horsefly District.
The development of the country north of Prince George is one which should receive immediate
attention. This can be best accomplished by extending the railway north through Pine River
Pass to the Peace River country, lying along the eastern boundary of the Province, and there
connect with the Alberta railways.
Wellington Colliery' Railway Company.
The Wellington Colliery Railway Company is the only company that has incorporated under
the provisions of Part II., comprising sections S, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 of the " Railway
Act," chapter 194, R.S.B.C. 1911.
It was formed primarily for the purpose of building new lines to the mines at Cumberland,
Vancouver Island, and of acquiring the existing line of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir),
Limited, from Union Bay to Cumberland.
It has about twenty-one miles of main track, with numerous sidings. The new portions of
the line are well built. It is laid for the most part of 80-lb. steel rails, with 3,000 ties to the
mile.    All the trestle bridges are of timber and are substantially constructed.
. The principal use of this road is for the transportation of coal from the mines at Cumberland
to ships at Union Bay Wharf. It also carries passengers and freight and exchanges both with
the Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway, a part of the Canadian Pacific Railway system, at Rolston,
where there is an interchange track.
Kettle Valley Railway.
This road was built under Dominion authority, 'but the Provincial Government granted aid
to facilitate and hasten its construction for the purpose of the development of the country
through which it passes, to the amount set forth in this report under the heading of " Aids to
Railways "—namely, $1,525,700, which includes $200,000 contribution towards a combined railway
and highway bridge over the Fraser River at Hope.
The road has been completed satisfactorily and is now in operation; the subsidies granted
therefor have been paid.
This line practically forms part of the Canadian Pacific Railway system in British Columbia.

• For the purpose of ameliorating the conditions existing in the vicinity of Kaslo, the
Provincial Government, under section 11, chapter 37, 1912, contributed the sum of $100,000
for the standardization of the Kaslo & Slocan Railway, formerly a narrow gauge, and partially
destroyed by fire between Bear Lake and Kaslo. The old rails, about 45 lb. to the yard, were
used.
It has been completed and is in operation.    Trains now run through from Nakusp to Kaslo.

This railway was formerly called the " Portland Canal Short Line." Although about thirteen
miles of it between Stewart, at the head of Portland Canal, in the northern part of British
Columbia, and the Red Cliff Mine have been constructed and track laid, nothing more has been
done, and, as almost all the equipment has been removed, it may be assumed that this railway
has been abandoned, as the time for its completion has expired.

Bridge at New Westminster.
Authority for the erection of a bridge over the Fraser River at New Westminster is contained
in section 16, chapter 32, 1901.
The river is tidal, with a range of tide between high and low water of about 14 feet. The
width at ordinary water-level is 2,100 feet.
The structure was designed to carry steam and electric railways and vehicular traffic. The
steam and electric railways occupy the lower deck, on which is laid a single track of SO-lb. rails.
The vehicular traffic is carried on the upper floor. 1) 22 Department of Railways. 1917
The work was performed under contract, $1,000,000 being the total cost. Construction
commenced in August, 1902, and the bridge was completed and opened for traffic in July, 1904.
The substructure consists of seventeen piers, eleven pedestals, and three abutments. The
stream piers were sunk by the open-dredging process. The bottom of the deepest pier is 141 feet
below high water in a depth of water of 67 feet. The penetration into the river-bed is 74 feet.
The pivot-pier of the swing-span has a penetration into the bed of the river of 90 feet. The main
channel pier was landed on the bottom in 80 feet of water, 102 feet below high water. British
Columbia granite was used for the masonry shafts of piers.
The superstructure of steel consists of five spans of 159 feet 3 inches centre to centre of
piers ; one swing-span 385 feet over all, centre to centre of piers; one fixed span 3S5 feet centre
to centre of piers; and one spread span 225 feet, necessitated by the peculiar physical characteristics of the site and plate-girder shore spans. The total weight of steel is about 4,000 tons,
or 8,000,000 lb. The spread span permits of approach by railways to and from the bridge in
both north and south directions.
The highway approach on the Westminster side abuts directly against the slope of the
bench on the top of which Columbia Street is situated, and reaches that thoroughfare on a
gradual ascending grade, turning to the left, until the level of the street is reached. The railway
approach to the bridge on the Surrey side is by means of a timber trestle 1,907 feet in length.
The total length of railway approaches in excavation, embankment, and timber trestles is
7,715 feet. The length of the timber highway approach on the south side is 990 feet. The total
length of 'bridge and approaches is 11,985 feet.
The swing-span is operated by direct current furnished by the British Columbia Electric
Railway, 650 volts.
There is an Edison storage-battery in the tower-house which furnishes power for the operation of the interlocking system. Its capacity is 140 volts; when it drops to 120 volts the battery
must be recharged. The alternating track current operates the relays of the interlocking
system.
A mechanical automatic system was at first installed, which was afterwards supplanted by
the present electric automatic interlocking system.
Since the opening of the bridge the .following repairs and betterments have been made:—
(1.)  Painting bridge throughout, 1910.
(2.)  Electric interlocking substituted for mechanical, 1910.
(3.)  Block pavement laid on bridge, 1910.
(4.)  Sidewalk for pedestrians completed, 1910.
(5.)  Electric traffic-gates installed, 1911.
(6.)  Concrete stairs from highway floor to Columbia Street, constructed 1912.
(7.)  Highway alarm-bells for traffic-gates installed, 1912.
(S.)  Wired north end and swing-span for electric lighting, 1912.
(9.)  Erected tide-gauges as guides to navigation, 1913.
(10.)  Renewed highway trestle of approach to north end of bridge, 1913.
(Ii.)  Installed Edison storage-battery, 1913.
(12.)  Installation switchboard, marble panel, with ammeter,  volt-meter,  and overload
circuit-breaker, 1913. ,
(13.)  Renewed portion of timber-trestle approach south of bridge, 1913 and 1916.
(14.)  Installed fog-horns, 1913.
(15.)  Relaid track on bridge with SO-lb. rails, 1914.
(16.)  Renewed ties on'bridge and south approach, 1914.
(17.)  Installed Styles circuit-closer at each end of swing-span, 1915.
(18.)  Installed General Railway Signal Company's Model 4 switch-machine for operating
circuit-closer, 1915.
(19.) Removed slides from west approach to the Westminster end of the bridge, 1913
and 1916.
(20.)  Bridge south of swing-span wired for lighting, 1916.
(21.)  South causeway, Surrey side, wired for lighting. 1916.
(22.)  Painted handrailing on highway floor, 1916. 7 Geo. 5 British Columbia. D 23
Separate timber approaches to the bridge on the south side have been erected by the
British Columbia Electric Railway, Fraser Valley Branch, which leaves the bridge in a direct
line south, and (2) by the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern Railway & Navigation Company, which
turns out to the- right from the bridge on the south side.
The British Columbia Electric Railway Company obtained permission to carry its high-
tension wires over the bridge by means of steel towers.
The following railways have obtained running rights over the bridge, for which privilege the
Government is paid by the two first named an annual rental of $4,000 and $20,000 respectively.
By the latter two companies the rental is to be at a rate per car computed by dividing the semiannual rental of the first-named company by the number of cars of that company passing over
the bridge in the same period.

For the six months ending June 30th last the number of trains and cars of the companies
mentioned above passing over the bridge are as follows:—
Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern Railway & Navigation
Company  (Great Northern Railway)    ,. 19,956 cars, 2,116 trains.
British Columbia Electric Railway      9,237      „     2,509     „
Canadian Northern Pacific Railway      5,71S     ,,       624      „
The motor car and truck traffic over the highway floor of the bridge has very largely
increased.    On September 4th, 1916, 860 motor cars and trucks passed over the bridge.
Instructions to employees on the bridge were issued by the Department of Railways and
approved by Order in Council dated November 18th, 1912.
The staff employed in the maintenance and operation of the bridge comprises the following:
Superintendent, two towermen, one spare man, four watchmen, and one caretaker. The monthly
pay-roll is $840.
Songhees Terminals.
The Songhees Indian Reserve, a tongue of land jutting in a southerly direction into Victoria
Harbour, containing 115 acres, more or less, situated on the west side of the Inner Harbour
opposite the City of Victoria, was transferred by an Order in Council of the Government of
Canada dated December 19th, 1911, to the Government of British Columbia.
By a subsequent Order dated February 27th, 1912, the foreshore of the reserve, with portions
of the navigable waters of the harbour adjacent to the reserve, and included within the harbour
lines as laid down by Mr. Louis Coste, and shown on the plan on file in this Department, was
transferred to the Government of British Columbia.
After a survey had been made a plan was prepared showing the proposed development of
the terminal property, which was found to contain about 162.82 acres. This area was allotted
approximately iu the following manner:—
Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway Company.—From the north boundary
of the reserve near Lime Street to the bridge over the harbour
near Johnson Street, exclusive of the right-of-way, with no foreshore (see chapter 60, 1916)      16.51 acres.
The right-of-way 100 feet wide, 50 feet on each side of
centre line, granted by the Dominion Government to the
Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway Company through the middle
of the reserve   (Dominion grant patent dated January  30th,
1904)        6.74      „

Park to be transferred to the City of Victoria      3.70      „
Marine and Fisheries Department      2.90      „
At the request of the Department of Marine and Fisheries, 2.9 acres of foreshore of the
reserve, situated immediately north of Johnson Street Bridge, were set apart to be used as the
depot of that Department. This privilege to cease when the area mentioned is no longer used
for the purposes of that Department.
It will be observed by the foregoing allotments that neither of the railway companies has
been given the right to any of the foreshore, the whole having been reserved by the Government
for roadways and common-user tracks.
In March last the distress occasioned by unemployment was met by the Government undertaking certain of the work on the reserve in connection with the roadways and common-user
tracks. The method of employing men for a week at a time may have relieved a good deal of
distress, but cannot be considered an economical way of carrying on the work.
A good many men unused to. the kind of work demanded had to be employed, and the
consequence was that a great many received injuries for which compensation was paid. The
accidents which occurred were twenty-three in number, fifteen minor injuries, seven serious,
and one fatal.    Compensation was paid in seven cases.
A better way to carry on this work is either by contract or by day-labour under the
direction of the Department, and only competent and skilled foremen should have immediate
charge of the work and employ such men as may be found to be suitable.
The following is a statement of cost, giving in detail the expenditure incurred since the
commencement of the work:—

Six dump-cars sold	
Arbitrator's fees (land expropriation)
$125,806 93

150 00
300 00
Total amount spent to October 31st, 1916 $127,246 93
Percentage of compensation, etc., of the total cost for the 20 months = 2.29 per cent.    Cost
of rock for October, 1916, $3.41 per cubic yard.
A low valuation has been placed on the existing plant, as it would, probably, be difficult to
find a purchaser at the present time.
t 7 Geo. 5 British Columbia. D 25
More than four years ago negotiations were commenced with regard to the building of
Johnson Street Bridge, proposed to carry steam and electric railways and highway traffic.
This structure was intended to connect Johnson Street on the city side with the extension of
that street to Lime Street, near Esquimalt Road The negotiations, however, have not been
completed, and there seems little chance of 'bringing the various opposing interests to a satisfactory agreement.
The Government in the first instance offered a contribution of $150,000, which was afterwards increased to $200,000. The Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway Company was to contribute
, the cost of renewing its original swing-bridge over the harbour which gave it access to its
railway-station on Store Street. In the first instance the British Columbia Electric Railway
offered a contribution of $50,000, but subsequently withdrew it. The Canadian Northern Pacific
Railway Company absolutely refused to make any contribution whatever towards the construction of the bridge.
It is rumoured that an effort will be made to change the site of the proposed Johnson Street
Bridge to a point some little distance farther north. If this suggestion is adopted, the cost of
the structure, owing to the greater length, would be increased, and the value of the Songhees
property as a railway terminal would be diminished.
The Dominion Government has now in course of construction and nearing completion very
extensive harbour-works in the vicinity of Ogden Point, forming an outer harbour comprising
breakwater and docks to receive the largest steamships. The full benefit to A'ictoria and
Vancouver Island of these works will not be realized unless the shipping is brought into closer
touch with the railways terminating on the Songhees property. Having this in view, it is
proposed to construct docks with ferry-slip on the west side of the terminal properties, where
cars loaded at the new docks, referred to above, can be transferred to railway terminals. This
will entail some extensive submarine works between the terminal docks mentioned above and
the entrance to the harbour. These docks and ferry-slips will form an important part of the
economical development and usefulness of the terminals.
I have the honour to be,
Sir,
Your obedient servant,
