The construction work on the AT&N
shops has begun. In fact, the steel frame of the main building has been
The building is to be constructed entirely of steel and concrete and when completed it will cost upwards of $15,000, according to a statement recently given out.
Work on the building will be rushed in order that the building for the shop proper may be ready to receive the machinery at the earliest possible moment. A large force of workmen are engaged, and no time is being lost in assembling the heavy steel units and putting together the big frame.
The weather is most favorable outside construction work and every minute of it being profitably utilized.
Just how long it will take to complete the building, install the machinery and gtet the shop on an operating basis is not known. It may probably take six or eight weeks. An official of the road is of the opinion that the building will have been erected, the machinery installed and everything practically in running order by or before the last of October.
The building of the AT&N shops here means more to the town than some seem inclined to admit. It means another monthly payroll, and payrolls mean greater material progress and a quickening of business activity.
