Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 18, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta
28 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Friday, December 18, 1970 OTTAWA (CP) CP Rail will be equipped to handle an estimated 25 million tons of coal on lines net worn southeastern British Columbia coal fields and the West Cousi by S. M. Gossage, chief executive officer, said here. Mr. Gossage told the Cana- dian transport commission a study on (he most difficult stretch of Golden and Kcvelstoke, j indicates that the whole line would have the capacity to han- dle any volume of traffic the company could rcascnablv pre- dict. The line from Spanvood, B.C., to the Roberts Bank superport had been continuously improved during recent years with heav- ier track and increased amounts j of heavy rock ballast beneath the ties. Greater nso of "robot ears" to guide large single-commodity trains and the possible electrifi- cation cf the railway between Calgary and Vancouver "would increase the capacity of the iine substantially." Mr. G o s s a g e said. PREDICT 1M-CAK TRAINS He predicted thnt by 1980 CP Rail could run as many as 6.6 trains between the coalfields and 'the port 24 hours. Each train would be made up of 11-1 cars carrying as much as 105 tons each. Use of electric trains, more efficient because they do not need to refuel and can travel faster, would raise the predic- tion substantially. Gossage was testifying on behalf of CP Rail ar. a commis- sion hearing on an application by the Kootenay and Elk Rail- way Co. to build a railway from the B.C. coal fields to the Mon- tana border. Coal could then be j shipped through the northwest- ern United States before re-en- tering B.C. for loading to Japan. At present, only CP Rail serves the Kootenay coal min- ing area and transports the coal through Canada to Roberts Bank. Mr. Gossage's testimony fol- lowed that of witnesses appear- ing on behalf of the province who have contended that a com- petitive railway would reduce the amount of money CP Rail charges for coal transport. As well, an additional line will be needed to handle the volume of coal needed to satisfy the growing Japanese market, the province said. ESTIMATES TOXXAGK J. R. Meredith, director of the province's economic and statis- tics branch of the department of industrial development, trade and commerce, testified that the Japanese market could take between 46 and million tons of Canadian coal by 1980. He said he was unable to sub- stantiate his predictions with j source references because much of his research on possible trends was given to him on a confidential basis. But he said there is "nothing more dynamic than the changing energy re- quirements in the world.'' CP Rail, opposing the applies- j tion on the grounds that it can handle the shipping require- j merits at a reasonable price, j contends Japanese require-; inents will not surpass 20 mil-j lions tons by 1980. The company based its pre- i diction on its current Japanese i contracts and ones under nego-. tiation. "The probable maximum is 20 i million tons by 1980." Mr. Gos-' sage said. ''Rut we would be, happy to handle all the tonnage we can RGV1P killer i mav he dead PRINCE ALBERT. S a s k.
