Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta HI V t ww t delay ton By RIC SWIHAHT Staff Writer REGINA Extensive delays In the movement of grain to Vancouver the last three months of 1671 have caught up with the Canadian Wheat board. G. N. Vogel, chief commissioner of the CWB, said there are It million busbels of grain waiting to be loaded at the west coast terminals and an additional 16 million bushels in boxcars enroute to Vancouver. He told the Palliser Wheat Growers' Association the delays were caused by ships not getting to the terminal area in time. "There are 10 to 15 at Vana ngn grain Out should have been loaded that he Mid. Ttey still will arrive and will have to be loaded, but this will stretch the capacity of the port." He said Friday morning all 11 berths were full and three ships were waiting. There are still 12 more ships dire this week. Mr. Vogel laid the quick turnover of vessels is important now. There Is enough grain In Vancouver for 10 days of joading. This means grain will not have to be shipped from the Prairies for 10 days. The pilot unit train used to haul grain from Saskatoon to Vancouver was termed delivery trend to the future at the convention but use now is not without dangers. According to G. N. Vogel, chief commissioner of the Canadian Wheat Board, the recent pilot trip was not new concept, but the use of bulk loading facilities was a first for grain handling. He said the project was i worthwhile experiment, but that there Is still much to learn before it can become t commercial venture. "There are three dangen Involved that I can't mention in this he said. "They would give the grain buyers an idea of what to watch for." Mr. Vogel nid the unit train concept would give an additional "birth" at the west coast port only if the ship waiting for tbe grain is exactly the right one. The ship which loaded the busbels from Saskatoon terminal during the grain unit train pilot run still bad to wait for two days to complete its load with otter grain stuffs, he said. The unit train was unloaded at Neptune Terminals without uncoupling the train. The grain was unloaded onto a conveyor belt while the train continued to move, with the grain moving directly into a waiting ship. t VmVV 1 Births, Deaths, Funerals, it Cards Of Thanks, In BIRTH MicDONALD Mr. and Mrs Allan J.
