It Is not the good fortune of many station agents and train conductors to step overnight into the jobs of managers and operators of a raUroad that at one time was asserted to be the most profitable stretch of mileage in the United States. That, however, was the recent experience of W. G. Aber, station agent, and Lhhi Jaycox, conductor, on the Bath & Hammondsport railroad in the Finger lakes region of central New York. The line is a subsidiary of the Erie system. It is but eight or nine miles in length and connects Hammondsport at the head of Lake Keuka with the main line roads at Bath. Messrs. Aber and Jaycox have been employed on It for years and probably never thought of assuming the responsibility for Its operation until some country editor a year or so ago made the comment that If the Erie would turn the road over to one or both of them they could restore Its waning prestige and finances. Before the adoption of the eighteenth amendment and thr- enactment of the Volstead laws the Bath & Hammondsport railroad carried thousands of tons of grapes from the 20,000 acres of vineyards that grace the hillsides surrounding Lake Keuka. Aided by Airplane Business. As the airplane business conducted by (ilenn H. Curtlss at Hammonds-jiort gained prominence and the number of its employees ran up into the thousands, the business of the Batli & Hammondsport gained further impetus, both of passengers and freight. Perhaps the management grew a bit chesty over the very comforting appearance of the profit and loss pages of the ledgers. If you wanted to enter or leave Hammondsport in those days you either rode on the Bath & Hammondsport, you walked or you hired a horse and wagon. If you wanted to ship anything you were In the same fix. It was the Bath & Hammondsport or nothing. With the completion of the State road automobiJes and busses began to cut into the passenger traffic of the Bath & Hammondsport at a surprising rate. Soon there were busses running that connected with trains on both the Erie and the Lackawanna at Bath, and when the demands of the war for quick deliveries of airplanes and motors from the Curtlss factory forced the company to develop a line of motortrucks another deep cut was made into the revenues of the railroad. With the signing of the armistice and the coming of prohibition the business of the B. & H. faded to Jess than the proverbial shadow of Its former dimensions, and with the raising of railroad wages to a point where the brakeman who made two 16-mile trips a day drew down checks of approximately $300 a month, the appearance of the profit and loss page provided no joyful pride for the management nor for stockholders. Business Still Is Available. Sources of business were not really lacking In Hammondsport. A population of some three thousand people still relied on it for their coal supply, which, at a rate of more than $20 for hauling each carload eight miles down hill, was not to be sneered at, for their food, furniture and other necessaries. Glenn H. Curtlss. L. J. Seely and some others soon organised a company to take over the former airplane and motor factories and this concern provided a considerable tonnage, while the grape crops continued to go out by rail, though not packed In bottles as of yore. But the former patrons of the line had learned that they could get quicker action and better service by automobile, truck and bus than the B. A H. seemed able or willing to afford them, and business for the railroad had dwindled to a point where the abandonment of all service was threatened when the Idea of leasing the road to Messrs. Aber and Jaycox was broached. They appreciate better than a foreign management the demands of local conditions and they believe they can give better service at a lower operating cost than the present records show. So now the former agent and conductor are running the trains, employing train hands, section hands, etc., and are the real bosses of the railroad. They expect to revise the present running schedules so that the trains can be used to some advantage by the traveling public. They have been In the service long enough to have a good Idea why the B. & H. under the old management was rapidly falling and they are confident enough of final success to take fall responsibility for operating the road. Can the employees succeed as managers where trained railroad executives have "thrown up the sponge? all.
