Railroad Matters

The Home News, December 3, 1859

The Passenger Train on the M. & C. R. R. will deliver its passengers at the Harmar end of the bridge next week.  The Depot is being removed to the vacant space between the track and the approach to the bridge, the track considerably raised and ballasted, and other improvements are in progress for that purpose.  It seems to us that a slight expense only would be necessary to bring the train across the bridge, with an easy descent to the ground by Front street.  This would unquestionably result to the benefit of the road, and we hope to see it accomplished ere long.  The unsightly trestle work in Harmar is being removed, as it ought to be.  We learn that it is destined to do duty on some part of the Union Road.  This road, it is expected, will be finished to Belpre in ten or twelve weeks.
