SLOW TRAINS. A speeding up of the trains on the Chillingollah and Sea Lake lines is promised with the com pletion of the schcme of improve ments at the Korong Vale station. Railway officials claim that the lack of facilities at the station is the chief causc of the unsatisfac tory average speed of trains on the Chillingollah and Sea Lake linos. They stated last Thursday that when the station and yards were remodelled it would be pos sible to accommodate three trains at one time. At present only one train could be drawn into the station, and as the Chillingollah, [ Sea Lake and Bsndigo trains were due to arrive at about the same time interruption was caused to the train:. The Sea Lake train had to be delayed 41 minutes, and the Chillingollah 81 minutes. At Wycheproof passengers for Sea Lake had to experience a further delay, because at that station the train from Korong Vale was practically remade.
