"Bogie Carriages"





Railways, Transport, Accidents, Language, Supernaturalism

    Speculates on the nature of the apparently ghastly-sounding bogie carriages recommended for the railways. Given that accidents on railways are 'tolerably frequent', asks 'who knows what might happen to so ghastly a conveyance?'. Suggests that 'fogey' would be a better name than 'bogey', and would certainly appeal more to 'nervous' people.
