WANT AN OWL TRAIN
Coal Field People Would Like to Leave Bluefield at 11 p. m.
Some of the men in the coalfield believe that the Norfolk and Western should put on an owl train which will leave this city at 11 o'clock and run as far as Welch. They believe that such a train every night would make it very convenient for people in the field to come to this city on No. 10, attend shows and shop and then return to their home. It is hardly likely that such a move will be made soon but there is considerable sentiment for such a train in the coalfield. There are a number of towns along the road which would benefit and there does not seem to be any doubt among a great many travelers that the train would pay the road as well as be a great convenience to many people who would like to visit this city at night but who cannot now do so because they cannot get back to their homes in time for work.
