THE BEACH STATION. PROPOSED ISLAND PLATFORM. £11,000 ON THE ESTIMATES. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Advertiser — 19 December 1914
TH? BEACH STATION, PROPOSED ISLAND PLATFORM, £11,000 ON TEII ESTIMATES. IT transpires that the object of the £11,000 placed on the Railway esti mates this year is to provide for an island platform at the Beach station. Only a fow years ago an expensive signalling system was installed bo between the Beach station and piers and a special line of way was set apart for heavy goods traflic. But there was not room enough betwcon the station platforms to permit goods trains pas sing passenger trains. As the pulling down and reorection of the station would have proved a costly business, it was decided instead to run rails outside the station and reach the station by means of a footbridge. It is not yet announced whether up line or the down line will be dup. licated ; but it is considered probable that the line nearest Railway place will be chosen.

Iie was impressed with the earnestness of Great Britain to see the war through until they had crushed German militancy, Everywhere -one went soldiers were training. This he con sidered was the weak spot in the whole business, that a million or more soldiers were still being trained instead of being ready. He had seen the Highlanders entrained at the start of the war who afterwards fought so bravely at Mons. They were as fine a body of men as you could see and fought to the death against overwhelming numbers. It was a sad eight to see the return of con tinuous train loads of wounded who were sent into the hospitals all over Britain. With his wife he travelled with a Belgian lady and her two young children, who were 5 days in a cellar in Louvain when it was over-run by the hordes of German soldiers. She had lost her husband and two bro...
