Pembrokeshire Light Railway. Meetings to further the project of a light railway for the district of Roose, between Milford Haven and St Bride's Bay, and from Haverfordwest to St David's, were held last week at Roch, Solva and St David's. They were called by Mr A W Massy, J.P., of Roch, and were well attended, the subject having aroused great interest. The suggestion with regard to the Itoose scheme was to carry it out as a private venture if the Great Western Railway could not be induced to undertake it. The St David's section, however, is proposed to be effected by the adoption of the Light Railways Act, under which the County Council provides one quarter, the Imperial Exchequer one quarter, and the other half of the other capital must be raised privately. The engin- eers who have interested themselves in the matter are Colonel J EGoldwyer and Mr S W Yockney, of London, who prepared sketch maps for the convenience of those at the meetings. Their proposal is that the line should go south from Brawdy and Roch so as to tap an extensive anthracite coalfleld lying along the St Bride's Bay, and also connect with the Kooso branch at Broadway. From there the line would, it is hoped, join the G.W.R. main at Denant level crossing, and from there have running powers over the two miles between that and Haverfordwest. The St David's section is about 2C miles, and is estimated to cost £ 1:30,000, or aC5000 per mile. These matters were fully laid before the meetings, and resolutions were adopted supporting the proposal and concurring with an application for the putting into operation of the Light Railways Act.
