This pipe takes away the water lying about the engine shed, and the conveniences near the station are a'so connected. To ensure a free flow to the lake sumps are being put in along the drain pipe at a distance of about fifty yards apart, so that any blookage can be easily remedied, Thia will effect a great improvement to the drainage of the station, and will carry away the water whioh is lying in the pit and (urntable The slight fall to the lake rnnkeß the drainage in the vicinity of the station and township difficult.
