Train service on the Oregon
Trunk Railway from the Colum
bia River to Metolius. 115 miles
south, will be possible by Febru
ary 1. 1911, as the track to that
point will be completed late in
January, says the Oregonian.
The grading through Madras,
which is 6 miles north of Metolius
has already been completed and
the contractors are laying the rails
at the rate of one mile and a half
a day. The rail service now is
completed more than 30 miles
south o f the river. For a stretch
Subscribe for The Spokesman. extending miles beyond, the
grading is ready and the ties
have Isvn delivered. The work
between Metolius and Bend is
progressing under the contract of
H. C. Henry.
At present the
contractors are rushing the work
to Metolius. As fast as the var
ious sections o f track are comple
ted the force «if men is reduced.
Although the work o f impov-
ing the company’s property at
Metolius has not yet been started,
preparations are being made to
make that place the terminal
point o f the new line. Shops like
ly will be built there eventually.
Ample yard fa«*ilities have been
provided as the company has pur
chased 100 acres of land which
can be converted to this use.
Engineers have completed the
survey of a number o f parallel
tracks through the proposed
Metolius yards. These will be
built as soon as the tracks are laid
up to that point. and they become
needed for handling the business.
Although at present it is noth
ing more than a dot on the blue
print o f the new road, Matolius
promises to become one of the
most important towns in Central
Oregon, even rivaling Bend, the
ultimate terminus o f the Oregon
Trunk. It has been announced
that whatever improvements the
company makes, such aa terminal
yards and shops, will be made at
A number of other towns are
taking form between the river
and the present terminus. Mad
ras is one o f the largest o f these.
At present these places are de
signated merely by the respect
ive mileposts nearest them.
Some of the settlements are not
yet large enough or lack the nec-
cessary permanency to hear the
dignity of a name.
