General Manager Haney and Chief Engineer Macleod Pay Cranbrook a Visit

Cranbrook now has a regular passenger train, and the trouble of dodging around in the yards looking for a train to east is a thing of the past. The new time card went into effect yesterday and until a change is made the train will leave Cranbrook for Macleod at 7 a.m., Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, and arrive here from Macleod at 7:50 p.m., Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The schedule time between the two towns is 12 hours and 50 minutes. This will be a great convenience to the people along the line and in the east who will have occasion to travel either way. Within a very short time, the roadbed will be in good shape to Kootenay Lake, and that will mean through passenger service east and west.
