Al- geria 2G9.5 mites more than reported in a Herald trauspor-; tation survey in January In the survey, The Herald re- ported Miat CPU applied for Lhc abandonment of [our branch lines totalling miles. They were: Ilalcy lo Whiskey Gap, 21 miles; Card- slon lo Glenwood, 25.7 miles; Cassils to Scandia, '23.4 miles; and Sutticld to Hays, 31.3 miles. The Herald has learned that. CPU plans to abandon more branch lines in southern Alh.'r- ta. They arc: Manybcrrics to Cardslon, 130.9 mites; Hays to EHham, 112.a miles; and Coal- hurst to Turin, 2G.3 miles making a lolal of 375.1 miles on the abandonment list. However, no act ion will, or can be tukcn by CPU logard- the lines they plan lo aban- don until Jan. 1, 1975. Back in 1961, both CI'H and CN Rail applied to Ottawa for the abandonment of a total of miles of railways in tlie Prairies. The Canadian Transport Commission: refused to ccnsid- tbe applications without studying the impact the aban- donment would have on the public, especially tlic farmers. In 19G7, the commission froze applications on the j abandonment of branch lines of all but l.GCO miles in lire Prair- ies. The commission said it would not consider any appli- cations until 1975. The four branch lines in southern Alberta which CPR lias already applied to aban- don are among the l.ROO miles not frozen. However, the com- mission has not ruled on them; and it appears the commission prefers lo consider Die whole package after Jan. 1, 1075. Cf Rail officials were in Lclhbridgc last year discuss- ing with the Oldman River Regional Planning Commis- sion the planned abandonment of more branch lines in south- ern Alberta, thai is, Ihe addi- tional 269.5 miles. Although it is too early to: predict whether the Canadian Transport Commission will ap- prove the abandonment in or after 1975, southern Albertans are advised lo prepare for tlie worst. It is to be recalled that tlie commission gave permission la CP Rail to disc-on Linus passen- ger service from Medicine Hal lo Lelhbridge and from Lelh- bridge to Calgary effective July 3, 1971. The commission said it was satisfied that CP Rail was losing money for the passenger service, that there was insuf- ficient patronage lo justify Ilia continuation of this service. and that alternative means ol transport were available.
