The Kensington Railway



News-Commentary, Spoof


Railways, Transport, Engineering

    Responds to news that the Kensington Railway failed to open. Denies knowing where the line begins or ends but will board a carriage 'trusting to chance and the stoker for being taken somewhere'. Observes that the line is for people going over the Hungerford Suspension Bridge who 'are desirous simply of being upon the move without any regard to what they are going for, and where they are going to'.
