"All bridges and culverts are to be
of concrete, cast iron and steel except
in a few instances it is proposed to
use wooden frame trestles which are
to be filled in when the road has been
in operation for several years.
"The main line track is to consist
of 80-pound open hearth standard
section steel ralls laid on tirst class
cross ties and each rail joint bonded
with copper bonds equal in eros sec
tional area to the trolley wire. The
track is not figured for rock ballast
as it is best to do the ballasting after
the road has been put in operation.
Side tracks are to be laid with smaller
sections of second-hand steel rail on
second class cross ties.
"The overhead construction is to
be of Catenary type using 7-11 mes

messenger and trolley wire su1pport.
It is proposed to build three ca1r
barns, one at Sparitanlurg, one at
l'nion and at either La4urens or -Clin

at Cross Anchor.

cities, instead of going from Cross
Anchor to the Mailey place and
branching there to Laurens and Clin

between these two points. This would
cost a considerable sum more and at
