Cumberland Railway and Coal Company
The Cumberland Railway and Coal Company was a railway operating in Nova Scotia. I don't know much about it except that it was basically a one-commodity railway serving the Springhill coal mines. After the disastrous 1956 and 1958 accidents led to the mine closure, the railway limped on until 1962. The rails were lifted in 1964.
Ed Jordan was kind enough to send scans of his April 21, 1952 employee timetable. I have put them on my web site for your viewing pleasure. Thanks, Ed!
Astute readers may remember I won some blank Cumberland Railway train orders back in May of this year.
