Temporary Freight Depot
A Concrete Building on Site of Old Building.
Since the last issue of the "Herald"
a force of men has been engaged in constructing a temporary freight
shed in the Newton yard to accommodate the freight traffic until the
completion of the new depot. The shed is located near the center of
the yard along side of the track between the old freight depot and
the passenger station. The shed is about one hundred feet long. The
work of dismantling the old depot has made slow progress the past
week owing to most of the men being at work on the temporary structure.
The roof has been entirely removed and within a few days the old structure
that has done service since the opening of the road about 52 years
ago, will be leveled to the ground and work at once commenced on the
new and more modern building. We are told that the depot will be constructed
