The snow train has several times this season been brought into play, to keep the road-bed clear of superfluous snow, while the section men have much to do to keep crossings and switches in good condition.
Long and heavy freight trains on our R. R., independent of log train. A busy road.
Among the recent freight arrivals was that of nearly one hundred tons of pressed hay, belonging to J. K. Martin. It goes to his “Sunny Crest” farm, where he has a handsome stock of high-grade cattle–about forty-five head. The hay comes from Mr. Martin’s farm in Deering–though by no means the whole quantity cut there–and is of fine quality and well-cured.
