Printed by Charles  F.  Banfield,  Printer to  the King's Most Excellent Majesty.
1925.  To His Honour Walter Cameron Nichol,
Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of British Columbia.
May it please Your Honour :
I have the honour to present herewith the Annual Report of the operations
and activities of the Railway Department of the Government of British Columbia
for the year ended December 31st, 1924.
W. H. SUTHERLAND,
Minister of Railways.
Victoria, B.C., October 31st, 1925.  REPORT OF DEPARTMENT OF RAILWAYS.
Victoria, B.C., December 31st, 1924.
Hon. W. H. Sutherland,
Minister of Railways, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I beg to submit the Eighth Annual Report of the Railway Department covering the
year 1924.
The staff of the Department at December 31st, 1924, consists of Deputy Minister and Chief
Engineer of Railways, Chief Inspector of Rolling-stock and Equipment, two Assistant Inspectors,
Chief Clerk, Draughtsman, and two stenographers.
In addition to supervision of all railways subject to Provincial Statutes, the Department has
control of the maintenance and operation of the combined railway and highway bridge over the
Fraser River at New Westminster and .approaches thereto.
A detailed statement is set forth hereunder.
(1.)  CANADIAN NORTHERN PACIFIC TERMINALS.
During the twelve months ended December 31st, 1924, estimates amounting to $6,288.96 were
paid out of the funds deposited with the Provincial Treasurer by the Railway Company under
section 7 of the " Canadian Northern Pacific Railway Terminals Act, 1917 " ; this expenditure
was devoted chiefly to the station at False Creek terminals, Vancouver. The total sum paid out
of the funds covering the years 1913-24 amounts to $7,946,965.57.
(2.)  CANADIAN NATIONAL RAILWAY CONSTRUCTION.
(o.) Vancouver Island.—No further construction-work has been undertaken on the main line,
the head of steel remaining at Mile 74, south end of Cowichan Lake. A branch line from Deer-
holme at Mile 57.9 (main line) to Cowichan Bay, a distance of 7 miles, is under construction.
(6.) Kamloops-Keloivna Line.—No construction-work has been done on this line during the
year.
(3.)  FRASER RIVER BRIDGE, NEW WESTMINSTER—RENEWALS AND REPAIRS.
Superintendent's Report.
Interlocking—-A trap circuit was installed to take care of interference to bridge-track circuit
caused by rails being bolted direct to new steel-plate floor on bridge approaches over Front
Street. Eleven reactor bonds were installed. These bonds have .a capacity of 1,500 amperes.
Detector-bars at all switches and torpedo machines were taken out and electric locks installed.
In May the Canadian National Railway completed installation of interlocking on west
approach to bridge.    This is being maintained and operated by the bridge employees.
Home Signal No. 5, B.C. Electric west approach, was moved west 300 feet to allow for CN.
trains using west approach.
Swing-span.—In January an auxiliary plant was installed to operate swing-span in case of
failure of electric power, consisting of a Fairbanks-Morse 45-horse-power semi-Diesel engine and
550-volt direct-current generator, the tower having been enlarged by the Dominion Bridge Company for this purpose.
An auxiliary break for swing-span was installed in January by the Dominion Bridge
Company.
In February a hot-water system supplied by Taylor-Forbes, Limited, was installed by Spring
& Sibley.    In March a coal-hoist was installed by the Heaps Engineering Company.
Port Mann Trestle Approach.—At the end of 1923 the Canadian National Railway completed
filling in the trestle from the Pacific Highway undererossing east for a. distance of 550 feet to
connect with existing fill.
An inspection of the highway and railway approach west of the Pacific Highway showed
that it was no longer in a safe condition for traffic, and a contract to renew this section by
replacing the old pile structure with frame-bents and heavier stringers was let to the Nickson
Construction Company;  work was started in November.
Bridge-painting.—The usual programme of bridge-painting was carried out. T 6 British Columbia. 1925
Bridge Reinforcement.—The Dominion Bridge Company completed their contract for the
reinforcement of the steel spans in September. The Resident Engineer's final report on the
work is as follows:—
" Westminster Bridge Repairs—Reinforcement Contract No. 8265.
" I beg to report the completion of the above contract and herewith submit final report.
" General.—This contract, being let in two parts and under the following items, was commenced on November 6th, 1923; the first part consisting of Items Nos. 1, 2, 3, and part of 6, was
let previous to November 1st, 1923; the second part, consisting of Items Nos, 4, 5, part of 6, 7,
and S, being let on January 14th, 1924.   The following are the items referred to:—
1. Spread-span approaches.
2. (a.) Adjustment of bearings, 380-foot fixed span,
(o.)   Swing-span machinery.
3. Trusses for cabin extension.
4. Reinforcing main trusses.
5. Reinforcement of floor beams.
6. Strengthening highway girders.
7. Spread-span truss.
8. Lower railway laterals.
" Representatives of the Dominion Bridge Company, including the erection foreman, engineer,
and assistant foreman, arrived on November 1st, 1923, and preparations, consisting of building a
boiler-house, installing compressor, laying air-line, and building office, commenced on November
6th, 1923, with a view to making Item No. 3 the initial point of commencement. Whereas the
above items were not followed consecutively, it is proposed to so deal with them in this report.
" Item No. 1.—This item included the removal of the steel-trough flooring from the approach
girder-spans and the replacing of same with I-beams surmounted and tied together by %-inch
steel plates, on which the rails were laid and secured by cast-steel clips, the I-beams being connected and riveted to the web of the girders and the plates riveted to the I-beams. Work
commenced on the west approach on November 28th, 1923; this approach was completed on
February 14th, 1924, and the east approach on March 28th, 1924. Between the above dates no
work was done from December 1st, 1923, to January 4th, 1924, owing to the non^arrival of steel.
The method employed was by means of a gantry which was erected over the track, and, owing to
the necessity of having interference to traffic at a minimum, all assembling was done at night, the
bridge being closed to traffic from 12.30 a.m. to 6.30 a.m. Owing to the necessity of disconnecting
by the cutting of rivets in the old trough flooring, it was necessary to use false-work under both
approaches to carry traffic during operations. This work proceeded to completion without hitch,
and an improvement over original plans which should be noted was the substitution of L'-bolts
for bolts through rail-clips.
" Item No. 2 (a.) Adjustment of Bearings, 380-foot Fixed Span.—The purpose of this item was
to allow proper expansion and contraction of the steelwork to take place by readjusting the rollers.
This work commenced on November 16th and was completed on December 6th, 1923. The method
employed was by reinforcing the end posts with plates and angles, also it was necessary to cut
the ribs of bed castings and dress sides of granite piers to obtain the necessary bearing for the
jacks.    Four 100-ton jacks were used on each side of span.
"(6.) Swing-span Machinery.—This work included the placing of a brake on the driving-
shaft which controls the opening and closing of the swing-span, palso the replacing of the rail-
lifts and the installation of a new latch mechanism. This item was commenced on January 23rd,
1924, and completed, with the exception of the rail-lifts, on February 15th. As the ties on the
railway floor were to be renewed, the rail-lifts could not he completed till these were placed.
The rail-lifts were eventually placed on May 25th, the work being done at night, and were
completed on May 30th.
" Item No. 3. Trusses for Cabin Extension.—This was the point of commencement of the
contract. Two trusses were placed to relieve the bending in the centre chord of the swing-span
caused by the weight of cabin and machinery, and to provide for the extra weight caused by the
installation of a new auxiliary plant in the cabin for the turning of the swing-span. (See Work
Order No. 3.) The progress on this work was slow owing to the difficulty of assembling the
steel under the cabin at points not easily accessible. This work was commenced on November
10th and completed on November 27th, 1923.    Two small changes from original plans were found 15 Geo. 5 Department op Railways. T 7
necessary, one where a strut fouled a beam and another where it was necessary to cope out to
avoid bearing on top laterals.
"Item No. li- Reinforcing Maim, Trusses.—This item, which includes reinforcements for
heavier traffic to the 380-foot fixed span, 380-foot swing-span, .and the five 159-foot fixed spans,
was commenced on May 16th, 1924. The major portion of this work consisted of replacing the
lattice-bars in posts with web-plates. This was unavoidably slow owing to the necessity of having
to adjust the scaffolds up and down the posts three times—namely, (1) to cut existing rivets,
(2) to drill through plates and angles, and (3) to rivet same. At the end of each of the 159-foot
fixed spans the lower chords were reinforced and a diaphragm placed to receive rods in tension
to transmit part of load from bottom chord to top chord. Further, in order to reinforce the top
chords on the swing-span, two 2-inch square rods were installed in each of the top chords,
supported on cast-steel saddles and secured through diaphragms placed in the top chords. In
order that the swing-span might now be jacked at the ends, four vertical rods were installed
at each of the four corners of the span to relieve certain members of their dead-load stress during
installation. On July 15th the span was jacked up 3% inches and the rods tightened, the web-
plates of the top chords being subsequently reinforced with cover-plates. This item was commenced on May 18th, 1924, and completed on September 9th, 1924. During operations it was
noted that, while work was being done on the swing-span and on the south side of the swing-span,
the work was delayed every time the span opened, due to the necessity of disconnecting the
air-line, with its consequent delay to the riveters. Further work under this item consisted of
installing small trusses between panel points on both 380-foot spans for the purpose of stiffening
at highway-level.
"Item No. 5. Reinforcement of Floor-beams.—Included in this work was the reinforcement
of the floor-beams on the 380-foot fixed span, 380-foot swing span, five 159-foot fixed spans, and
four railway stringers on the 225-foot spread-span. The major portion occurred on the 380-foot
spans. Cover-plates were placed on the bottom of each floor-beam and plates and fillers on each
side of the web-plates, requiring a very large number of rivets for each plate. On the swing-
span the loading-girder was reinforced with angles and seats to further distribute the load,
this being a slow and difficult piece of work owing to the difficulty of access and the fouling
of the swing-span machinery. On the 225-foot spread-span the four railway stringers were
reinforced top and bottom with cover-plates. The 159-foot fixed spans having a different type
of floor-beam, connection at posts were reinforced with heavy plates. This item was commenced
on March 28th and was completed on June 5th, 1924.
" Item No. 6. Strengthening Highway Girders.—This item, which was let in two separate
parts, included the strengthening of eight spans by means of cover-plates on top and bottom of
plate girders and by bottom laterals. The first part, which included cover-plates on five spans,
was commenced on December 6th, 1923, and completed on January 7th, 1924. The second part,
which included cover-plates on the three remaining spans and laterals on all eight spans, was
commenced on August 4th and completed on September Sth, 1924.
" Item No. 7. Spread-span Truss.—Commenced on June 8th, 1924; the purpose being to
correct excessive vibration, a system of bracing consisting of several trusses and braces connecting to the posts was erected. Erection was done by means of a movable gin-pole on the highway
connected with a portable engine. This item, which also included inclined struts bracing the
highway, was completed on August 12th, 1924.
" Item No. 8.—This item included the placing of lower railway laterals on the deck-plate
girders on the east and west approaches and bracing same. Further, it included the renewing
of bed and shoe plates at abutments. Difficulty was encountered in attempting to remove the
anchor-bolts which broke and new ones had to be substituted. This item was commenced on
July 21st and completed on August 12th, 1924.
" In general, it may be remarked that the steel arrived from Montreal in good shape, and
in two cases only were there any errors of shop-work. One, in regard to four side-plates for
reinforcing one of the floor-beams (Item No. 5), requiring new plates to be substituted; and
second, due to the closing error during the erection of the trusses on Item No. 7, necessitating
the use of small fillers.
"The following improvements were effected during the course of the above construction,
some of which were supplemental to the above and others in connection with the interlocking
system, and for which work orders were issued:— T 8 British Columbia. 1925
" Work Order No. 1. Change of location of Signal at North-west Approach.—This work in
connection with interlocking plant consisted of preparing concrete base and moving and erecting
signal on same.
" Work Order No. 2. Moving Watchman's Shelter on Fixed Span.—The purpose of this work
was to provide the watchman with a safety-platform, so that he might control highway traffic
without danger of being run down. It consisted of moving the shelter hack from the highway,
strengthening its supports, and providing new rods.
" Work Order No. 3. Extension of Cabin on Swing-span.—Please refer to Item No. 3 of main
contract, this work- being a continuation of same for the purpose of housing the new auxiliary
plant. A two-story addition to the present cabin was built of similar heavy construction to
withstand the vibration, the upper room being required to house fuel-tank, and to allow piston-
rods of engine to be withdrawn when necessary, trap-door through floor being provided for this
purpose. This work also included several necessary improvements to present cabin, such as
housing in machinery, reshingling roof, lining outbuildings, building platforms and railings, and
erecting coal-hoist.
" Work Order No. 4- Installing Engine, Generator, and Boiler in Cabin Extension.—This work
order covered the work of lifting into place from highway-level to cabin above and placing and
bolting down the engine and generator on the bed-timbers, securing same to the steel. Further,
this work included assistance given in coupling up and installing the above.
" Work Order No. 5.—This was an emergency order, as, while operating the swing-span, a
shaft was broken and the Dominion Bridge Company's labour and equipment were necessary to
lift and load same for conveyance to machine-shop and on return to unload and place shaft in
position.
" Work Order No. 6.—To provide for the erection of a timber 3 by 16 inches, 26 feet long,
on the B.C. Electric towers to act as a guide to the operator when closing the swing-span.
" Work Order No. 7.—This work order covered miscellaneous work in connection with the
interlocking system, including the cutting of guard-rails at insulation joints, conveying and laying
guard-rails, and, especially, loading for shipment the old trough flooring. This was, owing to the
weight of steel and the location in which it was loaded, relatively expensive, but had the steel
been taken out in smaller sections and conveyed to a better loading location, the charge against
Item No. 1 of the main contract would have been much greater, and, also, owing to the number
of rivets to be cut and the method required to be followed for safety purposes during operations
on Item No. 1, it was considered the better way.
" Work Order No. 8.—This work order is supplemental to Item No. 1 and covers all work
done on the spread-span approaches not included on the original plans. Provision had not been
made for Jordan guard-rail and wheel guard-rail, and it was found necessary to place same,
together with the necessary plates, clips, and bolts, entailing a further large amount of drilling
through the plates. Further, owing to the sharp curvature on this portion of the bridge, rail-
braces were required to prevent spreading rails. Drainage-holes through the plates to allow
the rain-water to run off the solid floor were also drilled.
" Work Order No. 9.—Owing to the continual breakage of bolts through the castings at the
bottom pinion for operating the swing-span and the consequent danger of failure of the machinery,
new castings were installed with bolts having high tensile strength, and with such reinforcements
as to prevent the movement of castings which was previously causing the fpailure of the bolts.
" Work Order No. 10.—For providing an extension to the present sidewalk round the end
post at the south end of the spread-span, in order that the public may not be required to step
from sidewalk to highway, with its consequent danger from automobiles. This entailed steel
supports for the wooden stringers consisting of a steel bracket from post, an I-beam between
posts, and a steel channel and plate connected to the highway girder and supported by a small
steel pedestal on the end post, together with the necessary woodwork to complete sidewalk.
" The above work orders were completed at such times as labour and equipment were available from the main contract, having in view the location of the equipment so as to avoid extra
cost in moving same.    The equipment was moved and site cleaned on September 16th, 1924.
" The total cost of this work amounted to $139,775.05.

Tie Renewals.—A contract for renewing the ties on the bridge was let to the Dominion Bridge
Company in December, 1923, and completed in October, 1924. To give the requisite increase in
strength for the heavier loading, the new ties were made 2 inches deeper throughout. The cost
of this work was $14,038.36 and included the removal and replacing of the motors and buildings
on the swing-span, rebuilding the platform at the Great Northern Railway approach, and the
adjustment of interlocking machinery. v

(4.)   EQUIPMENT INSPECTION DEPARTMENT.
Chief Inspector's Report.
Boiler inspections and examinations were limited to some extent by the closing-down, during
the first and latter parts of the year, of a considerable number of the logging and mining railways,
but advantage was taken of these periods by some of the companies to do a considerable amount
of overhauling to their equipment and placing it in a condition to comply with the Department's
regulations.
A great improvement has been shown in the condition of road-beds, tracks, and equipment
over last year, and a large percentage of the companies operating under the jurisdiction of the
Department are now complying with the regulations. Several new railways have been built, and
the recommendations and regulations of the Department were carried out in practically all cases.
A considerable amount of work has been done along the lines of safety-first instruction, and
the Department's Inspectors have received the heartiest co-operation and assistance from the
management and employees of the railways in carrying out this work.
Following is a report of inspection-work performed during the year 1924:— T 10 British Columbia. 1925
