A Railway Treasure



News-Commentary, Drollery


Railways, Time, Technology,

    Announcing the publication of a new 'Railway Guide', the writer hopes the work will contain information on 'how long each train will be detained behind its time on the journey' and likely places and times of collision. Also hopes it will include a 'Railway Pronouncing Dictionary', which will help passengers to understand guards and porters and to 'get out at the right station'.
