TXEER The CPR has come a long way since Chi- nese laliorers "sweated blood" lo lay tracks through nigged B.C. moirnlajn lerrain. Nuw a 30-man crew with about eight motor-driven, hy- draulically operated track maintenance macliincs can re- place tics at Hie rate of 125 an hour. This is a far cry from Ihe old hand-labor method. Here's how they do it a nooi- man's guide on how lo build a railroad; Can you imagine lifting 150- pound railroad ties for a liv- ing? They get heavy towards the end of. a day. The darn things are eight feet long and seven by nine inches around. The leading machine, sort of a small crane, moves new ties to the proper location along- side broken ones, (which have been previously and hyclraulically pulls the spikes.

This marsh is along High- 3 adjoining Confederation jusl south of city limits DU budget for 1971 in west- ern Canada approved a sub- stantial sum for lake installa- tions toward control of water level of this otherwise ideal waterfowl breeding area. K o o I e n a y game biologist Ray Bemarchi has termed the lake, flanked by a narrow band of wilderness on its soulh shore, "an ideal symbiotic chain interpreted as a functioning life inter- dependency algae through insects, birds, and muskrats up to the resident cow moose oc- casionally seen browsing among bullrushes on the wild- erness end. Lake Elizabeth is led at ils south end by little Jimsnu'lh Creek and lake depth flue- tuates widely depending on spring runoff and dry or wet summers. Survival of nesting waterfowl in thick hullnishes depends on stabilized control- led depth. Scattered Canada geese hatches at present arc dicey enough for only occa- sional survival. Lake drainage continues via Van Home St. railway area, (ten culvert under the cily to Josepn Creek in northeast area. This draining creek often dries during dry summers. DU theory for waterfowl propagation is based on con- trol of Jimsmith Creek inflow but is dependent on the wide and shallow lake storage area which would require some lype j of diking.
