More About the New Railroad,
The surveyors for the B. B. 1 B B. B
have not resumed work where they left oiT
at the P. <fc W. By. trest'e at Millerstown,
and there seems to be a strong impression
abroad that nothing will be done towards
surveying a route to connect with the S.
ABB. near Butler for the present at
least, but that the P. & W. line from Mil
lerstown will be made a standard gauge by
putting down a third rail.
From knowing sources we learn that the
P. A W. is now engaged in placing these
new rail?. Standard tcuage ties were pot
down a couple of years ago when there
was talk that the road would be made a
wide gnage from Butler to Foxburg If
this is the case the work of making it the
regulation gauge will be comparatively
small. This plan is received with better
satisfaction by our people thin the one mat
first announced, for it will give a more di
rect line to Butler.
It may Dot be generally known that the
new railroad will give a snorter route to
Pittsburg by 20 utiles from East Brady
than by the A. V By. and in consrquence
the travel from this section will be a con
siderable item.
In the opinion of Edgar Pool, agent for
the company here, and by those who
should know, the contract tor the road
irom Br ad j's Bend to Millerstown will be
let in a short time Prominent railroad
contractors are looking after the mat:er.
This plan of taking to the P <t W at Mil
lerstown and from there to Butler will of
course make a detour aud longer route to
couuect with Conneaut and other lake
markets than it a road would be built di
rect from Karus City or Millerstown and
eonneot near Butler with the S. <fc A. Ry.
