RAILWAY REFORM. The North-Eastem Railway Company intends to send a further number of its officials to America this autumn to study trans-Atlantic methods of railway working. It will be remembered that the general manager of the North-Eastern, Mr. Gibb, and several of his colleagues made a trip across the Atlantic a year ago, from which a number of in- teresting reforms have since resulted. The latest of these is the proposal to convert the suburban and coast lines near Newcastle from steam to electric traction. This will allow the accommodation to the public to be greatly increased, as light trains, con- sisting of three coaches each, will be run at intervals of ten minutes or a quarter of an hour, instead of only one or two heavy trains an hour, as at present.
