June 15, 1903 (9th Parliament, 3rd Session)

?

The MINISTER OF RAILWAYS AND CANALS (Hon. A. G. Blair).

1. No, it is not the intention to erect a roundhouse at Sussex. There is only one engine that stands there over night, and a suitable building to house this engine will be built during this summer.
2. No, it is not the intention to place gates at the railway crossing, Main street, Sussex. An electric alarm bell has been placed at this crossing and kept in good order, and has, it is believed, served its purpose very well. It does not impede the street traffic as gates would, and it gives good warning to the public. The department is not aware of accidents being of frequent occurrence at this crossing.
3. No, plans have not been prepared for a new railway station at Sussex, it not being considered that a new station is a necessity at present.
