IN CITY AND COALFIELD
Heavy Passenger Train
Train No. 2 pulled out of the depot here yesterday with twelve coaches loaded down with passengers for Virginia points. Among the interested people who watched the train leave this city was Judge W. F. Rhea, of the Virginian Corporation Commission, who is spending Christmas here as the guest of his daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Goodykoontz. The judge enjoys spending the holidays here with his grandchildren, who spent Thanksgiving with him at Richmond.
Train Much Delayed
Train No. 3, which was delayed the previous night, arrived in the city yesterday morning shortly before 5 o'clock. It was followed by train No. 17. The local offices of the Norfolk and Western called up the hotels about a half hour before the train to advise them of its coming so guests who wished to take the train going west could get up in time to leave the city and arrive at their homes in time for Christmas. The service was much appreciated.
[No. 3 was due out of Bluefield at 8:30 p.m. in a 1910 Official Guide.]
