But our narrow gaogpriend-i
say, is it not a tact Ihat the o rs
of narrow guage! roads we'gh
less in proportion to what the

thi,we sa: Va, narrow -gnuaie
cars which are very light, are

that ttie dead weight of the
lightest n irrow gauge cars i
less than that of the lightrB

has been a g'iod reason win
such cars as we have described
tor the. narrow g.iuge can be

there would be some excuse lor
introducing the new system
and new confusion, but when
it is possible to build roads Just
