Frank Slide Story, The
'The grim cascade of limestone from Turtle Mountain will undoubtedly lie like an enormous scar across the beautiful Crow's Nest Valley for centuries to come. It would conservatively take 100 gravel trucks, carrying 3 tons per load, making ten trips a day, an estimated 66 years to remove the debris. As it is, the gigantic tombstone is probably the most awe inspiring in the world and stands as a constant reminder of those 100 seconds of wind, rock and dust which wrote the epic of Frank slide in indelible limestone, shale and coal script.'

More Info Factors in Railway and Steamship Operation
Excerpt: "During the war the public gained a new view of the importance of full car loading. It was impressed upon them by the railway companies and the public authorities that everything must be done to save in the use of cars, fuel and labour in the railway service. In the last two years of the war, when munitions, etc., were moving to the seaboard in immense quantities for shipment overseas, there was virtual unanimity between the shippers of export traffic and the railway managements that cars had to be loaded to a considerably higher measure of their capacity."
