RE-OPENING OF THE BISHOP'S CASTLE RAILWAY. The line having been thoroughly repaired, and arrangements for its working completed, a great number of people assembled <it the Bishop Castle Station to witness the departure of the train for Craven Arms at 9 30 a.m. on Monday, July 2. Prior to the return from Craven Arms a number of busy hands, headed by Dr. Lane, of Bishop Castle, were at work, and by twelve o clock an arch of evergreens and flowers decorated with banners, was erected over the entrance of the station, and flags floated from several other places in the town. At 12 o'clock the station was thronged with people anxious to witness the arrival of the train, and as it entered into the station hearty cheers were given, and the bells rang out a merry peal in honour of the occasion. The leading tradesmen of the town closed their shops at eleven a.m., and a number of the employees availed themselves of the opportunity of having a "trip by rail." It is stated that the negotiations, which had been for a long time carried on with Mr. Marston and others, have been brought to a successful issue through the untiring exertions of Mr. Thomas Griffiths, solicitor, of Bishop's Castle, assisted by a few influential friends. Three trains a day will run for the present.
