    Continuing his assessment of Bradshaw's Monthly Railway Guide, the author pokes fun at George Bradshaw's 'characteristic regard for Truth', the confusing index, and other aspects of the work. The illustrations show Bradshaw in various poses: clinging onto a locomotive's smoke-stack, forming the body of a locomotive (with his head constituting the smoke), and enjoying his work with Prince Edward.
