f Agreement By Railroads And City Sought An effort to conclude negotiations with both the Penns\ Ivania and Baltimore and Ohio railroads ivith respect to certain street improvements here was renewed this week by the city. City Attorney Richard E. Zimmerman + af: again vrittea officials af both companies, in an attempt to accelerate action with respect to the proposed improvement and extension of East street, acd removal of the now-useless tracks an All Saints street between Market and Carroll streets. Both projects have been dormant over a long period, following initiation of negotiations many months ago. Considerable correspondence has passed between the city and the two railroads concerning both projects, but thus far there has been no action Approval Granted With respect to the Eas street project, the City v.-as advised by ' the Pennsylvania Railroad the latter part of May that executive approval had been granted to negotiate the conveyance of the property necessary for the improvements and the railroad's assistant general solicitor was preparing an agreement to cover "certain fundamental conditions pertaining to the transfer that must be clarified and fully understood and complied with." The letter received by City Attorney Zimmerman added that the company hoped "to have the agreement in your hands, for execution by the Corporation, in the very near future." Concerning the track removal project on All Saints street, that , also continues at an impasse Latest advices from the B. and O. indicated that the matter now lies solely with the City, which is supposed to remove aid salx-age the rails. Certain city officials maintain that the railroad agreed to remove the concrete abutment on All Saints street, and also the buttress at the end of the track ad- jacent to Matket street. Local railroad co 'firmation of this, how e\ er. was not available. In the meantime, the track area, both alongside and between the rails, is nurturing a fine growth of weeds.
