Block System on Boston & Maine. The Connecticut and Passumpsic di vision of the Boston & Maine railroad is to have the block signal system as soon as work can be begun next spring, instead of having to wait until the Boston divisions of the road have been equipped, as was first intended. Assist ant Superintendent G. L. B. French has received word that the Boston & Maine management has decided to install the signal system between Springfield and Windsor, wherever there is a double track. The contract for the signal equip ment has been let already with a view to beginning the work early in the spring, and it is announced that the contracts cover the equipment of every mile of double track on the entiro Boston & Maine system. As the block signal system, which is to be installed, is only for protection against rear end collisions, the stretches of single track will not be affected. . Under the new system only one train at a time will be on any one block, so the train crew can aiways know the whereabouts of the preceding train. The blocks will be about three-quarters of a mile in length, and the equipment will be of the double bladed, electric motor sema phore pattern, with lights for night signals. The wife and daughter, who are help ing you get along, need some spending money without having to ask for every quarter. Just shell out now; be manly, be generous, be just. Wilmer Atkinson.
