    Reports on the sorry state of Punch's spoof 'Kensington and Wormwood Scrubs Little Western and No-Junction Railway'. The railway clerk is impressed with his position at a 'private station', a reflection of poor public interest in the line. Notes that the directors of the company are contemplating allowing the public to hire carriages 'at any particular hour'.
