New cars are fitted with the Pintsch system, but the expense is very largely in the cylinder and because of the length of the route of the Intercolonial Railway we have to use large cylinders to store a sufficient quantity of gas.
I think my hon. friend misunderstood me. I said that the Canadian Pacific Railway Company was using acetylene gas with a Pintsch gas apparatus, and that the Intercolonial was using Pintsch gas, with Pintsch gas apparatus. There was no question of acetylene gas on the Intercolonial Railway.
