This is the October 16, 1910 employee timetable for the Halifax & South Western Railway, covering the railway from the junction with the Intercolonial Railway in Halifax to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.
The timetable also includes the Caledonia branch from New Germany Junction to Port Wade on the western side of Nova Scotia.
These employee timetables were for the guidance of the railway workers and were not issued to the public. They contain a wealth of detail for the railway historian and curious observer.
These scans were provided by Duane Porter of the Halifax and South Western Railway Museum.
