TO THE EDITOR.
Sib, —I would like, through the medium of your columns, to draw the attention of the railway authorities to the time at which the morning Outram train arrives at Dun* edin. According to the time-table it is supposed to arrive at seven minutes to nine, but, as a rule, it is about two minutes to nine. Now, as I, along with several others who travel by this train, have to be at our places of business by nine o’clock sharp, and very often get threatened with the “sack” for being late, do you not think the powers that be might bestir themselves and get this altered ? If they can manage to let the train arrive at the stated time they will confer a very great boon on the travelling public.—l am, etc., A Regular Passenger. Dunedin, October 11. P.S.—I might mention that the train from Port Chalmers nearly always arrives at the proper time—viz., ten minutes to nine—and I do not see why the other one should not do the same.
