BARRY TRAINS TO CARDIFF DOCKS. PROBABLE OPENING OF THE NEW SECTION ON THE 1ST APRIL. THE WORK RAPIDLY APPROACHING COMPLETION. It is satisfactory to know that the directors of the Barry Company are determined to extend their railway system to the Cardiff Docks without the smallest possible delay, and we are reliably irf- formed that there is every probability of the Barry trains beginning to run through from the Riverside Station to the Bute Dock at Cardiff on Monday, the 2nd April, and it is the intention of the com- pany under the new arrangement to run the whole of their trains along the entire distance between Barry and Cardiff Docks. With the exception of a few lengths of rails at the Docks end, the rail- way has been completed and signal-box and signals erected. The station near the canal bridge in James-street, which is of a temporary character, is also well advanced. The platform has been all but completed, and the wooden structure which covers it only needs a covering of tarpaulin, a coating of paint, and the erection of a ticket-office to make it available for traffic. The Taff and Barry Companies have running powers over this branch of the Great Western Railway, but it is questionable whether the former will at present avail themselves of their privilege. The opening of the branch will give excellent facilities to those engaged at the Docks to travel between that of commercial industry and the centre of the town, as well as between the docks at Cardiff and those at Barry.
