Waiting Room Weekly Round-Up

Well, it has been a very hectic week for me. On Monday I had the displeasure of having to re-interview for a job given my work is undergoing a re-structure. This was - to say the least - stressful. Yet, I can happily report that I managed to secure a position and that I can now get on with finishing my PhD and book, as well as start thinking about my future. Indeed, on this latter point I had some very good news on the same day that my job was confirmed - but that will have to stay secret!

I just want to thank all my followers on Twitter who have supported me through the very long run-up to the interviews, it certainly has been a very worrying period. So, on with the round-up:

Monday: A Bit of Edwardian Railway Satire
Tuesday: PhD Historiography Snippet: The Power of the Victorian Railway Chief Executive
Wednesday: Meet a Railway Luminary No 3: Myles Fenton
Thursday: Railway Directors in Parliament - 1847
Friday: 'The Railway Station; Or the Power of Kind Words' - 1864
Saturday: Extensive Frauds and Forgeries on the Great Northern Railway Company - 1856

Also, don't forget my main Turnip Rail Blog this week - Reducing Railway Industry Fragmentation in the early 1900s

  1. Hello, I just discovered this site, and it's a good find for me, as I am writing a middle grade mystery that takes place in Victorian England. I read your post about the sad case of Mary Ramsey on another site I found via Two Nerdy History Girls. I'll be back.
