Trains Go Round Swan View Tunnel

NORTHAM, Mon — No longer do train passengers bound for stations east, of Swan View tunnel await a warning whistle and then hurriedly close all windows. No longer do trains on this line have to be halved at Midland Junction. . . . Reason is that the Swan View de viation is now in operation. Work on the deviation was started 17

months ago and has taken eight months longer than was expected. 'Double - loaded' trains, which were banned by the loeo drivers' union from running through the tun nel on the upward trip, are now be ing . used again, saving time. Garratt engines, also banned by the union f;iom the upward run through the tunnel, are also in use on this section.
