Train Service Failure
itneys Thrive on
1 Runs About City
Railroad operating and traffic of
ficials have come -to the conclusion
that operating suburban trains in
and out of Omaha during the street
railroad strike is not profitable.
Thursday the Northwestern put
on a line of shuttle trains between
the Broadway depot in Council
Bluffs and the Union Station, Oma
ha. During the entire day these
trains handled 84 passengers. The
service has been ordered discontin
ued. Late Thursday Union Pacific shut
tle train service between Omaha and
South Omaha was started. It pro
vided for hourly service during the
morning and evening, with a train
every two hours during the Tniddle
of the day. It was not a winner, the
eight trains carrying less than 200
people during the day and evening.
Friday trains started out on the
hourly schedule, but carrying only
few passengers. Service was main
tained yesterday, but if business
does not pick up, trains will be discontinued.
