In the face of figures showing rev
enues to be far below operating costs
it will probably be difficult to ad
vance conclusive, arguments against
the proposed train schedule curtail
ments, but if Brattleboro business in
terests cannot prevent the cutting off
of trains tlfey can at least make a de
termined effort to secure satisf aetoity
service from those that are left.
In considering the matter of service
as it affects Brattleboro and adjoining
towns the first question is that of
convenience for the large number of
people who make this town their
business center. It is of vital inter
est to them, as well as to local busi
ness concerns, that train service in
and out of Brattleboro is so arranged
that they can leave home and reach
home at convenient hours.
The proposed schedule will not be
convenient for the many people who
come to Brattleboro from the south
for the reason that it contemplates
no south-bound afternoon train be
tween '2 p. m. ami " p. m.. the Boston
& Maine proposing to discontinue
their ."..K5 train and the Central Ver
mont to advance by two hours or so
the leaving time of the present 4.10
train. No train schedule should meet
with the approval of Brattleboro that
does not provide an afternoon train
having for the south late enough to
give outside shoppes a good part of
the afternoon here and yet get them
to their homes in Vernon. Snuth Ver
non and Northfield. Mass.. by supper
time. As to the talk of making Brattle
boro the terminus of the Vest River
branch instead of South Ijondon
derry. it is difficult to see how this
can lie done without abandoning the
northbound Tate afternoon train, ami
such a course of action would raise
a storm of protest all along the line.
No service on the West River road
would be r-onsidered anything like
adequate that did not provide a train
from South Londonderry to Brattle
boro in the morning and a train from
Brattleboro to South Iondonderry in
the Jute afternoon.
