Prevention of Railway Accidents



News-Commentary, Drollery


Railways, Accidents, Statistics

    Reflects on the slight drop in the number of people killed or injured in railway accidents between 1861 and 1862. Pointing out the increased number of railway lines laid during this period, considers the statistics to be 'an encouragement' to keep on 'giving heavy damages' to victims of railway accidents.
