Cor­rec­tion

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

As Mr. Ge­orge Mathe­son pointed out to us as soon as the pa­per was out last Wed­nes­day, we made an er­ror in writ­ing that the sec­ond line of the Mon­treal, Maine and At­lantic Rail­way goes from Coat­i­cook to New­port. It is the Cowansville branch of that rail­road that does.

The Coat­i­cook tracks are an al­to­gether dif­fer­ent story, the tracks be­ing in a very good con­di­tion, the al­most ex­act op­po­site of the MMAR ones. It is op­er­ated by St. Lawrence and At­lantic Rail­road.

Mean­while, a cur­sory in­spec­tion of the MMAR line in the United States seems to show that they are bet­ter main­tained than in Canada and that, con­trary to what is the norm in Canada, their in­stal­la­tions are clearly marked.

In the USA, the equip­ment owned and op­er­ated by MMAR is clearly iden­ti­fied to the com­pany; not so in Canada.
