Enclosed is copy of my letter of September 20th to
Mr. LePage. You will no doubt wish to make sure that all cars are being reported
to Mr. Brooks. It seems to me that some cars may be left off these passing
reports sometimes by mistake and if you find we are not properly safeguarded,
presume you will follow up with the General Superintendent, with a view to
having a check made of the cars as received from our connections,  JLf this is
not already being done.  It will then be a matter for someone to check the
passing reports to make  sure all of the cars are accounted for.
Will you kindly advise.

FILE OR CLAIM       Q.     73332
Vancouver, B.C. September 20, 1957
Mr0 A. F. LePage,
General Agent,
Vancouver, B.C.
On carload shipments of lumber and other commodities moving
under through rates from points on the Pacific Great Eastern Ry. to destinations beyond Vancouver on the Great Northern Ry., for instance, and
on which the Canadian Pacific is simply an intermediate carrier, is my
understanding correct that we do not obtain our revenue through local settlement but through Audit Office adjustment in Montreal. I presume the same
applies on traffic moving in the reverse direction when covered by through
I believe this traffic moves under through waybills and if
so, are the x*aybills stamped showing the junction point at which the
cars are received from or delivered to connecting lines? If not, what
method is followed to properly police the movement so that the Audit
Office will be able to protect our revenue.
I have in mind cars that might, due to emergencies, move by
car barge between Squamish and Vancouver as well as traffic interchanged
with the P.G.E. Ry. at North Vancouver
This question has been brought up as a result of the Association
of American Railroads stating it considers this revenue is a matter for
settlement between the interested carriers at Vancouver, consequently,
before taking steps to amend our General Division Sheet No. W. 18 naming
the switching charges, we would like to know if collection of such charges
can be properly handled here.
Your early reply will be appreciated.
Assistant General Freight Agent.
cc: Mr. T. Hooks FTM Winnipeg, Man.
Your letter August 13th file G-D2. 29184, It has been necessary for me
to write Mr. LePage for this information. I will advise you further
as quickly as possible.
